Mission Statement

NYC Medics rapidly deploys to remote and difficult to reach areas in disaster zones and complex humanitarian emergencies providing the highest level of medical care with dignity, integrity and compassion to people who would otherwise not have access to aid and relief efforts.

Ecuador Earthquake

NYCM continues to coordinate efforts and monitor events in Ecuador after the 7.8 earthquake hit on Saturday evening.  Based on the current information received, and given the scale of the earthquake we are activating a team to be on standby (Spanish speaking capabilities strongly preferred but not required).

If you are able to deploy, please complete this brief Volunteer Deployment Survey that will provide us with important information needed to determine mission readiness and our overall ability to respond.

El Salvador Tactical First Responder Training

Working with the US Department of State, NYCMedics implemented a training program in tactical emergency medical services in El Salvador, a Central American country with the world’s highest violent death rate. This training program, which focuses on providing life-saving emergency medical care to victims of trauma while under fire, was taught to Salvadoran first responders who are on the front lines of providing care during emergencies.

Please consider helping NYCMedics stand ready to assist by contributing to our Global Relief Fund.

Donate Now

NYCM has put medical volunteers into the field to provide life saving medical care for approximately $80 a day.  This means that on average we can medically intervene in someones life for $4.  We think this is a remarkable number.  When you realize how important $4 can be, efficiency becomes a core value.

You can feel confident knowing that 90 cents of every dollar donated supports NYC Medics disaster relief and humanitarian aid programs.
