Our most vital primary job is rescue. Immediately after a natural disaster, many times there are people trapped in dangerous situations. Our first goal is to remove them from the dangerous environment if at all possible.
Regardless of our limited resources, we do everything we can to provide quality first aid to all victims, for any injury or illness. It is a priority for us to help a victim get transported to a location where they can receive better care and comfort, even if it means an air conditioned firehouse.
The third priority for our organization is to provide relief. Sometimes this is the hardest to accomplish because of resources required. In the relief phase we help provide food, water, shelter, clothing, and comfort to those affected; to the best of our best ability
