The mission of REACT Warning Team 6247 is to support emergency communication and coordination between REACT Teams, REACT International headquarters, and supported emergency response and relief organizations by:

(1)  Operating a traffic handling system to receive, transmit, and deliver formal messages in standard formats to support disaster communications. 

(2)  Supporting training for REACT members in disaster messaging through use of the traffic handling system.

(3)  Providing alerting and warning messages to and receive situation reports from REACT Teams during disaster exercises and actual major emergencies and disasters.

(4)  Operating alternate communications pathways in disasters for supported organizations.

We Appreciate Donations

REACT Warning Team 6247 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff.  All funds donated are used to improve our disaster communications capabilities through acquisition of equipment, payment of website and online service's fees, funding training, and paying for the costs associated with actual disaster operations.  We greatly appreciate your donations to help us do our mission.
