Rapid Response Teams

We train and deploy Vincentian Volunteers at our Annual Disaster Conference on how to deploy in teams of four to assist SVDP Councils in disaster impacted areas. The Teams follow an Incident Command Model and provide support to our local Vincentians on how best to organize local relief and recovery efforts. Rapid Response Teams are generally deployed for a period of two weeks and are comprised of an Incident Commander, a Public Information Officer, a Resource Coordinator and a Logistics Officer.
