Our primary mission is to save lives, with our mandate to reach any catastrophic affected area in under 6 hours with a significantly equipped, self-contained rapid-response consisting of highly trained and experienced teams, our own fleet of transport aircraft, state of the art equipment and supplies, all launched from four strategically positioned regional centers across the world.
Fatalities are not always the result of the onset of the catastrophe but in most cases are a result of shock, exposure, and dehydration. Through WINGS CRS rapid-response, we can see countless more lives saved than possible before by current response efforts.
We can't always stop nature's wrath, but we can help prevent disasters from creating needless peril. As Wings CRS develops over the next several years, we will work proactively with member nations to provide preemptive solutions to prevent death and destruction.
Our first solution involved the recent launch of our Advanced Meteorology Group, forecasting weather warnings and soon will begin deploying more S-band doppler radar sites to areas around the world which are deficient in providing warnings of imminent threats.
Fortunately large disasters do not strike every day. The WINGS program will seasonally rotate one-third of our medical teams to serve in our ongoing medical mission program which will provide needed care to impoverished populations. This provides not only an emotional break for the response teams but it allows the teams the opportunity to continue to refine their healing skills while rebuilding lives and entire communities through advanced healthcare.
