AAOS Disaster Preparedness and Response

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.
