Our Mission:

Provide assistance in the immediate aftermath of a disaster through the deployment of highly trained and equipped volunteers.

About Us:

After witnessing first-hand the devastation caused by the EF5 tornado that struck Joplin, MO in May 2011, the hearts of a few men were ignited to create a volunteer group capable of responding to and serving the communities most affected. Minuteman Disaster Response (MDR) is a first-responder support team comprised of well-trained volunteers. Before disaster strikes, we forecast storms and prepare our teams for deployment. When the call comes to serve, our goal is to provide significant aid to disaster victims and emergency personnel utilizing the NIMS ICS management system. Our volunteers are trained in all areas of disaster relief, including Debris Cleanup, Resource Management, Search & Rescue, First Aid, Emergency Communications and Command Structure.

We are there before, during and after disaster strikes to serve communities who need our help the most.
