Reviews for Information Technology Disaster Resource Center Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

ITDRC were lifesavers for our AmeriCorps-Disaster Response Team serving in Missouri on flood response and recovery. When hearing of our technological challenges with our operation here, a colleague of mine recommended I give them a call, and boy was I blown away by what services and support they could provide for our team at no cost. After talking with Joe and Deb on the phone, they realized our dire need and drove up from Texas the next day to provide us with tablets, laptops, Dish wireless internet and television, and phones. They also referred us to a few other providers that were able to get us things they didn't have. Overall, it was and has been a great experience and the AmeriCorps Disaster Response Team will look forward to partnering with them in the future!!

Well, here there I was at the Okanogan Fire complex, hurting for staff and infrastructure and in drive Joe and Deb to offer the assistance of ITDRC. Not only was this a blessing at the time, the care at which they took in assisting us was immeasurable. They not only provided a vehicle for a command post, they set up a great public wifi net for the line personnel to use at their discretion. We can't thank you enough!

I have had the privilege and pleasure of working side by side with ITDRC during several disasters relief operations in multiple states. This group is very professional, respectful and friendly. The dedication they have to their mission of helping others is both impressive and inspirational.

We were so pleased with the help we received from ITDRC when our school was broke into and computers were stolen. They immediately went to work to replace the stolen computers and have checked on us to make sure everything is working good since. They have a great heart for people and for kids. We are so grateful for their help.

ITDRC is an absolute powerhouse in the disaster resource/technology space. Though we haven't worked directly on deployments with the volunteers and staff, we have utilized their technology resources at a recent emergency management conference (IAEM/EMEX 2014) and had our best experience at the event in years - due, mainly, to the technology & support provided by ITDRC.

Staff & volunteers of this nonprofit are always friendly, easy to work with, and exemplify what collaborative leadership truly means. I highly recommend ITDRC, the expertise of staff/volunteers, and the hardware/equipment they provide - they really work magic in the disaster response world!

I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with ITDRC in a devastating response crisis. The dedication from this group to not only respond but to actually deliver necessary resources where they are needed in the field is exemplary. They work tirelessly to engage with National Bureaucracies as well as state and local agencies and local volunteer groups to place resources where they can be best utilized. The end result: a person who has just lost everything can reach out to loved ones and tell them they are alive and okay. As a volunteer, seeing the wave of relief come over that person so they can move forward was life altering.

This is the second time we are working with ITDRC and we are very impressed on how they are very quick to respond. They have provided us with Computers that we ship to Kenya and help educate the youths. Once again thank you so much.

We were so delighted when we received a phone call from ITDRC to respond to our request for reusable computers. It was an honor to meet Joe and Debbie when they delivered the computers to us.they were so kind and loving. And from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much. You donation will go along way to help the poor youths in Kogony Villagein Kisumu Kenya longing to be computer literate but lack the resources.

I have had the opportunity to work side by side with the wonderful team that operates the ITDRC Mobile Technology Unit three time since April. The first thing that comes to mind is WOW! The capabilities and technology that they have to offer is remarkable. Even more remarkable are the wonderful people who operate all that amazing technology. They are are truly passionate about what they are doing. Not only when responding to a disaster but also when traveling across the nation and educating communities about their planning and preparation needs. Not only are they are truly passionate about responding to disaster areas and assisting communities with their communication needs they are also dedicated to the mission of building disaster resilient communities.
I look forward to working with ITDRC in the future and and very grateful for their service. It is an honor and a privilege working with them.

This is the third event that my program has colaborated work with ITDRC. The equipment and support that this group has provided allows for incalculable capacity building for our responses. Their staff have been extremely professional, patient and always helpful in all situations. They are now one of our first calls anytime we respond to an event.
