My Life As A Superhero: Myths About Disaster Response – Chris Sheach

As a disaster responder, people think Chris Sheach helicopters in to dig out people from collapsed buildings, feed starving children, or evacuate whole cities from an impending storm. This is a myth. His superhero power is dispelling these myths and sharing insight on how anyone can be a hero, by providing aid that really helps those affected by disasters, at the time they need it most.

95% of people after a disaster are rescued by friends and family. These  are the real heroes. A lot of my focus is on mobilizing local disaster response.
