Challenge to Responder Capacity: Vulnerable and special needs populations

Vulnerable and special needs evacutation and care during a crisis can command as much as 40% of a local communities responder capacity. Using the Virtual Surge Depot to identify, locate and classify relatives, employees or members of companies or organizations that have special needs during crisis, CROs can create a first line of care for those unable to care for themselves. Using a buddy system that assigns a volunteer or employee to a specific individual, the CRO can put a pre-determined transportation and evacuation plan in place that become integrated with the overall community response, thus removing this duty from the responder community and restoring a large percentage of responder capacity to response and containment.
