Catastrophic disasters occur infrequently. Large numbers of health professionals are required to respond and many will have neither the experience nor training to provide effective care. Nurses are often the first on the scene and the first to instigate care to those in need. The aftermath of such disasters provides an opportunity for reflection. Responders are reminded of the pain and suffering they witnessed and, in many cases, experienced. There is also the opportunity to learn from these experiences with the potential to enhance our ability to respond to similar events in the future.
