The Johns Hopkins Go Team

 

Who We Are

The Johns Hopkins Go Team is a rapidly deployable medical group established to respond to regional and national disasters.
















Created through a federal grant in 2009, the team has about 185 members from a variety of disciplines throughout the Johns Hopkins Institutions who have been trained in disaster response.

Capabilities of the team include mass casualty triage, establishing and/or staffing of field clinics or shelters, backfill in hospitals, and public health services such as vaccinations and disease surveillance.

In the fall of 2010, the Go Team was registered as an official Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) team. This designation will allow the current team to expand to include many more Hopkins personnel, to provide additional training opportunities, and to broaden the scope of activities and response efforts. 



 

Our Mission

To provide a valuable disaster response asset, to enhance the emergency preparedness of Johns Hopkins employees through on-going disaster training and education, and to serve our surrounding community through health-related projects.
