National Mass Care Strategy
An effective mass care strategy is one which we are well versed and fully prepared for, no matter the scale and scope of the disaster. A community that supports all community mass care needs, including emergency sheltering, feeding, bulk distribution, evacuation, household pets and service animals, access and functional needs and family reunification. To best address these needs, which are scalable based on severity and scope of an event, the concept of a National Mass Care Strategy was introduced and developed through a collaborative process led by the American Red Cross, Federal Emergency Management Agency and National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster under the direction of the National Mass Care Council. 45
