Oregon Disaster Medical Team (ODMT) is an independent, non-profit organization and a registered EMS agency in the State of Oregon comprised of volunteer healthcare professionals from the Pacific Northwest. The team plans, trains and responds to provide relief healthcare services when local, county and mutual aid reserves are overwhelmed due to a mass casualty incident or disaster event.
Experience in the US has shown that pre-designated teams of disaster healthcare providers can respond more effectively to assist overwhelmed local resources.
In the event of a disaster within Oregon, the team is equipped to rapidly respond. One of the primary missions of ODMT is to address urgent and emergent medical issues in the first 72 hours of a disaster event, before outside agencies can assist.
