Background and Discussion:
Since 1948, Direct Relief has worked to help people who confront enormous hardship to recover from disasters and improve the quality of their lives. Direct Relief and Public Health Services agree to collaborate in the Hurricane Preparedness Pack Program which will pre-position medicines, medical supplies, and other disaster relief materials.

Expected Impact:
Having the proper supplies available is the key to being prepared during hurricane season, which lasts through the end of November. This program is a partnership to improve the availability of supplies and services to enable the immediate treatment of vulnerable populations following a hurricane or other natural or civil disaster that occurs during 2021.

Alternative Options:
There is no alternative program that exists in Harris County that provides this service.
