Answering the call
Major earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and terrorist’s attacks are just a few reoccurring disasters we encounter throughout the United States as well as the throughout the entire globe. Hundreds of thousands of citizens have died due to disasters, and many more left homeless. Although initial relieve efforts are available, they are often short-term—and lacking in sustainability.
