HOPE Emergency Response Teams (HERT)

HOPE Emergency Response Teams (HERT) deploy groups in times of disasters such as fire, traffic accidents, and natural disasters. Bangladesh is highly prone to floods, cyclones, hurricanes, earthquakes, and monsoons. HOPE recruits and trains local volunteers to be a part of these response teams and are currently working to expand the operation to the whole of Bangladesh.
