Our Vision

The mission of the Standby Task Force, is to provide volunteer online digital responses to humanitarian crises, local emergencies, and issues of local or global concern by:

  • Deploying a flexible, trained and prepared network of digital volunteers to assist crisis-affected communities through cooperation with local and international responders, including real-time CrisisMapping support.
  • Maintaining awareness of developing crises, connections with responder organisations and potential deployment partners.
  • Testing and refining crisis data processes and technologies.
  • Supporting and advising local, autonomous crisis mapping groups that may or may not be affiliated with the SBTF.
  • The SBTF does not communicate directly with crisis affected communities, and does not deploy in non-permissive environments.
  • The activation criteria describes the conditions for an activation.
  • Continuously improve by effective communications with all parties.
