WI-1 DMAT is part of the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS), a federally-coordinated system that provides medical capabilities in the event of a large-scale emergency that overwhelms normal local medical resources. A DMAT consists of medical, logistical, and administrative personnel, as well as equipment to deliver medical care in devastated environments.
The National Disaster Medical System is administered through the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response in the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
The WI-1 DMAT is supported by a partnership of several state and national agencies, including NDMS, the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs. Visit the WI-1 DMAT website for more information. (exit DHS)
