AAOS members' unparalleled response to the 2010 Haiti earthquake prompted the creation of a formal disaster preparedness plan. Together with the
Orthopaedic Trauma Association
(OTA) and the
Society of Military Orthopaedic Surgeons
(SOMOS), AAOS developed a comprehensive disaster preparedness plan to enable an effective and efficient volunteer response when a disaster strikes and the orthopaedic community is called upon to help.
