Thousands of pre-planned mass gatherings and special events occur each year. Mass gathering events enable disaster medical support teams to work with local, regional, and national partners to provide community service, train, prepare for crises and share best practices to improve emergency response. Working together during scheduled events can provide a more unified response to future tragedies.
IDMC all-hazards approach to disaster preparedness supports response to a variety of natural disasters.

The Interstate Disaster Medical Collaborative began as an informal group of disaster medical experts in 2007 and incorporated in 2011 as a 501c3 to help coordinate state and regional resources in response to the devastating tornado in Joplin, Missouri. Since that time, our all-volunteer organization has helped to build, grow and improve disaster medical resources across the nation under the leadership of its board and expert advisers.
