The Boston Bombings showed us that

  1. Reddit's and Google Doc's systems are not robust when individual threads are hit by high traffic, so coordinating efforts for airline miles, food/shelter offers, ride offers, etc. can crash the system quickly.

  2. A lot of misinformation moves around in the first few moments and hours, when people need solid, verifiable information to execute their response.

The goal of this subreddit is to coordinate disaster relief/response efforts in the Reddit community.

When posting, post [EVENT][TYPE of POST]<title> and use the convention DD/MM/YY when referring to the event. Also, where possible, refer to specific locations (e.g. San Jose, CA, not Northern California).

We will be getting tags shortly to associate with disaster threads. In the meantime, if, say, you have airline miles, FIRST look to see if there are any threads already open on the event, THEN post a new thread with your offer. Likely, the moderators will already have posted information.

Last: No personal information on Reddit. If people want to use your offers, make sure to negotiate through PM or another medium.
