FIT maintains situational awareness of impending disasters while simultaneously working on disaster preparedness and disaster risk reduction at local, state, national, and international levels
When a current or future crisis presents acute problems, FIT reviews needs and activates a tailored team of subject matter experts from its team roster.
Once activated, FIT works with the community and other local stakeholders, including the response network in place.
FIT uses a three-step design process to help communities understand the core issues and needs that are not being addressed in a given crisis. Communities are then self-empowered to tackle issues related to disaster risk reduction, preparedness, response, recovery, climate change, and sustainable resiliency.
FIT's solutions are sustainable, adaptable, open source, and implemented in real-time. Solutions can be anything from physical products to software creations to social system changes (and everything between), designed to facilitate community empowerment, assist first responders, and support on-the-ground agencies.
FIT practices co-creation and open source solution sharing to increase community resilience and change the world, one neighborhood at a time.
