We focus on mapping the human and organizational terrain of local businesses, communities, and municipalities to cultivate “whole of community readiness” before crisis scenarios. Through an entrepreneurial approach, we socialize the concept, skills, technology, and mindset of proactive emergency readiness to train, empower, connect, and harden local resources to be capable of sustaining and leading through times of duress as a collective community.
In the aftermath of disasters, Tactivate rapidly deploys hybrid teams skilled in recon, disaster management, logistics, emergency medicine, and economic stability operations. Our responses are expedient due to pre-existing resource networks and the team's capacity to rapidly identify critical local assets to advise, assist, and accompany indigenous efforts, augmented by our teams from the military, first responder, and entrepreneurial ecosystems. Efforts are lean, locally informed, culturally relevant, and scalable, allowing rapid force multiplication.
A Changing Aid Paradigm
Conventional aid often undercuts local economies, fails to identify systemic underlying issues, and flood-impacted regions with supplies and expertise available locally, creating dependencies and further economic disruptions. This dynamic locally led to recovery efforts. Tactivate operates in humanitarian assistance and disaster response environments to change this paradigm.
