Welcome to Haiti First Responders

About Us

What is Haiti First Responders?

HFR is a program providing Emergency Medical Services (EMS) along with a Disaster Response Team which includes Fire/Rescue services in the Titanyen/Cabaret Region of Haiti. This program includes training and skills for onsite response teams.  Our goal is to make this a fully owned and operated Haitian project that meets all the Haitian protocol requirements and will operate as a nonprofit ministry in Haiti.

Un evangile pratique ("A Practical Gospel")

Our first base of operation is in Titanyen, Haiti and is a registered organization/ministry called OCSENOE. OCSENOE's slogan is "un evangile pratique".  This community project is made up of 12 or more Haitians who have a desire and passion to improve their communities, living conditions, and way of life. 

With God, All Things Are Possible

HFR is a work in progress and we are in urgent need for US/Canadian volunteers and staff willing to serve the Haitian people. Our ultimate goal is to have an Expat US/Canadian onsite responding alongside the Haitian team until they are fully trained and confident in their ministry. We hope to be able to implement an exit plan in 3 years (less or more depending on needs) and have this be a fully run and operated Haitian program. Once this exit plan is accomplished, it should be fully funded by the Haitian people.

Together, with the Haitian team, we have many other plans and opportunities for the community of Titanyen and would love for you to walk alongside us.
