Target demographics: people and animals impacted by disaster

Direct beneficiaries per year: In 2010, we responded to 72 events in 53 countries and within the USA - 33 states and territories. As of end of 2012, we have responded to over 300 disasters and crisis events. Dozens were rescued in Dominican Republic based on our intervention. Dozens more were reconnected with loved ones after storms disrupted voice communications in the USA. Residents of Rockaway NY were provided communications equipment and resources after Sandy devastated their community. Hundreds of first responders and officials received critical training on the use of social media in disaster in 2012.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help us research online emerging urgent information during disaster. Or, research disaster preparedness information for various countries to help us increase our library of preparedness materials. Three hours assisting during an emerging event could help save someone's life. In 2012, volunteers helped facilitate a rescue during rapid flooding that struck the Dominican Republic. Volunteer from home and help save lives!

Programs: Response - supporting the public online during disaster.
Process - Testing new disaster response tools/technology
Preparedness - Planning & support for disaster exercises

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.
