About Us

When all hope seems lost, when confusion reigns, when the only thought on a survivor’s mind is, “What now?”—that’s the moment the First Response Team arrives, bringing new light to communities in their darkest hours. We fill the gap between the onset of a disaster and the arrival of traditional relief agencies, when too many communities must fend for themselves because the resources necessary for rescue and recovery—equipment, tools and personnel—are damaged, inaccessible or unavailable.

By studying weather patterns and communicating with leading meteorologists, we’re able to anticipate when and where the next disaster may hit. We position our rapid response team near storm locations nationwide and, when alerted to potential disaster, deploy immediately with our fleet of more than $1 million in specialized disaster response equipment. Our goal is to arrive in the crucial moments following the catastrophe, and our mission is to reduce the time it takes for help to reach those in need—so we can join local first responders in saving lives and restoring hope.
