Mobile Medical Disaster Relief:   An emergency medical disaster response program that bridges gap between traditional aid efforts and the immediate and profound need for care in the aftermath of a catastrophe. The core of this program is rapid deployment of mobile medical teams that aims to have an advance team on the ground within 72 hours and within a week the first mobile team delivering emergency medical care and stabilization to people, regardless of where they are and the challenges confronted.

Mobile medical teams are self-sustainable and self-sufficient, capable of operating in remote areas without assistance. Teams are fully equipped with medicine, relief supplies, food and water purification solutions – enough to last for 14 days.  They are composed of board certified, licensed medical professionals – doctors, nurses, paramedics, physician assistants – that collectively provide lifesaving care quickly and efficiently; all of whom who volunteer their time to do so.

This program does not compete with the other humanitarian organizations; but instead addresses an unmet need in the field, providing critically needed care for those who are inaccessible.  Mobile Medical Teams are forward triage finding people and communities in need – bridging the gap – in traditional relief efforts; in the critical moment where life or death is determined by hours and days and the care they receive within that time.

 

Global Aid:  Focuses on chronic, complex humanitarian emergencies and post disaster environments allowing NYCM to partner with local nonprofit organizations – those who know the community, the people, the culture and traditions best – in ongoing humanitarian relief efforts. The program focus is health and medical in nature, but allows for tailored humanitarian aid programs in effort to assist local agencies and communities with their most prevalent need.

 

Disaster Preparedness & EMS Training & Certification: To enhance training capacity in pre-hospital trauma care/emergency services and mass casualty/disaster preparedness planning in developing countries.  The key objective of this program is to provide developing countries and local organizations within these countries with the tools, knowledge and skill necessary to fortify existing efforts and operate sustainable programming in the field of disaster preparedness and pre-hospital emergency medical services.  The aim also focuses on providing appropriate training of timely care to victims of sudden and life-threatening injuries or emergencies in order to prevent needless mortality or long-term morbidity.

 

Assessment & Evaluation of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Infrastructure:  Working with local, regional and national country and nonprofit partners, this program assesses and evaluates current EMS systems and infrastructure to identify, develop and implement programming appropriate to the needs and demands of the partner country/communities.  The goal is to provide a comprehensive overview of current/existing EMS infrastructure in developing countries through assessment and evaluation of the national, regional and local EMS operations from pre-hospital care through discharge; to provide a detailed work plan that addresses weaknesses, further develops strengths, and realigns EMS resources which support the strengthening and/or development of a cohesive national infrastructure.
