Caring for Communities in Times of Crisis

Disasters come in many different forms: hurricanes and storms, earthquakes, tornadoes, fires, and, of course, pandemics. The communities affected by disasters include those that respond to them such as the health care, emergency response and law enforcement communities. It is important to document the lessons learned from disasters to better prepare for future crises, and to care for ourselves and our communities in the face of disasters.
