What is a first responder type of situation?
A first responder situation is one in which you are one of the first on the scene of an emergency, disaster etc. For example - firemen are first responders to the scene of a fire. When called to support a disaster, Humanitarian Air Logistics (HAL) would transport U.S. Government and NGO first responders to the scene. HAL would also provide air support in the way of helicopters and fixed wing aircraft for search and rescue, and to assess’ immediate needs for sustaining life and property. These needs would be transmitted to a command center in the U.S. where additional HAL aircraft (and others as needed) would be dispatched to the disaster site whether it be domestic or international.
