DSC trains and deploys Vincentian Volunteers at the annual SVDP National Assembly. During that gathering, the Annual Disaster Conference takes place. During that training DSC educates Vincentians 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. For questions about our Rapid Response program please contact Kevin Peach, COO at: Kpeach@svdpdisaster.org
We encourage you to donate to support a Rapid Response program. It is with your generous support that we can continue our disaster relief programming throughout the United States.
