Mission Statement

NYC Medics rapidly deploys to remote and difficult to reach areas in disaster zones and complex humanitarian emergencies providing the highest level of medical care and humanitarian aid with dignity, integrity and compassion to people who would otherwise not have access to relief efforts.

Description

NYC Medics is an international disaster relief organization with a two pronged approach focusing on pre and post disaster impacts. Our primary focus has been responding to disasters and treating those affected in hard to reach areas. This is accomplished through our network of committed volunteer medical personnel, willing to deploy within hours of being contacted. In our training programs we are work with local government officials and organizations to build a sustainable, well trained work force in pre-hospital care, incorporating fire services cross training in basic first aid. By teaching and certifying a greater number of personnel in pre-hospital care, we hope to increase access to the healthcare system and provide basic life saving measures to those who currently lack access to these services.
