Emergency preparedness during COVID-19 - potential availability of relief teams
Situation overview
In the case of a new major disaster during the COVID-19 crisis, there may be a need to mobilize international assistance to assist the affected country.

This discussion serves the purpose to identify which relief teams (USAR, EMT, etc) are principally ready to deploy to an emergency during the COVID-19, provided that the affected country has requested for assistance, international travel is possible, and the sending country/organization has authorized the assistance.

Relief Teams (INSARAG/USAR, etc.) that are in principle ready to mobilize to major disasters during the COVID-19 crisis are kindly requested to create a team record (Fact Sheet) using the menu "RELIEF TEAMS" above indicating "Stand-by". The record should be updated to "Stand-down" in case the team is no longer available.
