SBTF are so fortunate to have amazing volunteers. Within 1 hour  of announcing the activation we had approx 60 members offer their time, as of now we have 131. Thank you each and every one. If you have not signed up yet here is the link to do so .

If you are not a SBTF member it is never too late to join us.  http://blog.standbytaskforce.com

We are conducting training and refreshers for all tasks.


A brief update on the task so far:

We have inputted numerous organisations Health Care Facilities information into one comprehensive document, we are now filling in all the missing information, geo locating, reverse geolocating (if you dont know what this is sign up and find out) then verifying information. This document is now one of the most comprehensive ones of its type.

We have activated our Empathy team. (Leesa, Donna and Christina).  If anyone feels affected by the task they can talk to the team in total confidence at anytime.

Please contact them either via email leesa@info4disasters.org, donna@info4disasters.org or christina@info4disasters.orgs or via our skype group.

Some feedback we received today via email from – World Health Organisation…….

” Thank you for the call today and, as we discussed your SBTF volunteers excellent work with Health Facilities data aggregation / QA-QC”
