Mission:
The mission of Humanity Road is educating the public by providing accurate, critical recovery information, before, during and after a catastrophic disaster. Our core focus is how to survive, sustain and reunite. Examples of the kind of information we confirm and convey to the public through social media channels includes location and status of hospitals, first aid information, (survive), location of food, shelter and water aid stations (sustain), how to register “I am safe” and how to search for and reconnect to missing loved ones (Reunite). In the immediate hours after an event there is an urgent and critical life saving need to identify and map the impacted hospitals, and identify field hospitals as they are launched
Results:
Since 2010, we have provided surge support for monitoring social media to officials in the USA and abroad. For the public, we have connected rescuers with those who need rescue and reconnected loved ones who were unable to communicate with those impacted by storms, hurricanes and earthquakes. We have provided critical aid information to individuals impacted and have conducted and participated in dozens of disaster preparedness exercises supporting social media.
