about us

The Standby Task Force (SBTF) is a global network of volunteers who put their professional and personal skills to good use by assisting first response agencies that are traveling to the site of a disaster or crisis. We provide vital information so responders can render aid faster and more effectively. Working remotely and globally, we monitor the web and social media in order to collect information, verify it’s reliability and then weave into a single interactive map. We are able to represent complex scenarios in visually compelling, yet easily read formats that can be crucial for responders to understand the situation and plan their response strategy.

We were set up in 2010 and have been active in many natural disasters since then as well as supporting humanitarian agencies with election monitoring and other projects.
