Disaster Response Domains

When agencies in Pittsburgh mobilized to respond to the disaster of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans they organized their response around 15 domains:

  • behavioral health
  • child care
  • communications
  • durable goods
  • employment
  • food
  • housing and utilities
  • insurance
  • legal services
  • leisure activities
  • medical services
  • schooling
  • spiritual and bereavement services
  • transportation
  • translation services

These would be helpful dimensions to consider both in emergency preparation and response.
