Disaster.Com is a site focused on education, articles and community for individuals, responders, aid/relief workers, healthcare professionals, academia and researchers on topics such as preparedness, response, emergency management, technology and more. We’re community driven – we listen to what people are asking for and then develop content and strategy around their voices.

We’ve spent weeks combing through Amazon to find products you may need and that will withstand the rigors of difficult environments – from waterproof notebooks to shockproof cameras to highly compressible sleeping bags and pillows to military level insect repellent. Almost all of the products we have listed here have over 100 reviews on Amazon and a four star rating or higher. We’ve combed through descriptions and ensured that the products are relevant and useful.



Welcome to Disaster.Com, the world’s first comprehensive disaster resource aggregation site for victims, first-responders, fundraisers, and the curious. Everything from current disasters, to business, to disaster aid is covered within our forums. Mostly, we’re about sharing lessons from those who have experienced disasters to those who may experience one in the future. Share YOUR story.



Join our forums and share your thoughts, your stories and your knowledge about disasters and crises. Learn about opportunities to help, or share your own needs.


Volunteer to help expand, enhance, publicise, or moderate. From writing helpful articles, to posting on social media, to starting new topics, to moderating our forums – we need your help.



Shout! Scream! Yell! Let people know we’re here. The more people who participate, the more help we can give, and the more help will be received. We need people to know we exist!



We’re all about knowledge and sharing disaster experiences with those who, fortunately, haven’t experienced a disaster. In order to gain more insight, we need participation. To that end, we’ve created a great promotion page that with flyers, a Craigslist ad you can post, and information on linking to us.


We’re self funded. What does that mean? We don’t have outside investors giving us money to make this site great. One of the ways we raise money is by selling cool clothing and other items with our cool logo. We make $5 off of each item purchased, and all money goes to supporting this site. Visit the Disaster.Com store today!


The other way we raise money to support this site is through advertising. We have lots of opportunities to promote your brand – from display advertising, through sponsored reviews, through inclusion in our e-mail blasts (we won’t sell your our mailing list though). For more information, fill out our advertising request form.
