Emergency Rapid Deployment Services

Rapid Deployment/Temporary Shelter Operation Services

Endeavors’ Emergency Services teams are prepared for rapid deployment wherever and whenever crisis occurs. (Click here to see this page in Spanish)

Our organization understands that when a crisis calls, seconds count. Our Emergency Rapid Deployment and Temporary Shelter Operation services seek to respond quickly and supply what is needed in the event of a disaster or crisis.


We support emergency readiness and response through three different services:

1. Natural Disaster Emergency Response (e.g. Natural Disaster Evacuee Support) 

2. Crisis Emergency Response (e.g. Emergency Unaccompanied Minor Care)

3. Pandemic Emergency Response (e.g. COVID-19 Emergency Shelters)

By maintaining a staff of over 1,600 professional reservists throughout the United States, we have the ability to deploy both workforce and equipment needs within 72 hours, 365 days a year in the event of a natural disaster or crisis. Whether help is needed internationally and/or in conjunction with another crisis response, we are capable of multiple deployments.
