Kate, thanks for following up. The meeting log, thanks to Séverin, is here:


We spent the meeting discussing how to formally describe different kinds of HOT responses to crisis situations, including the distinction between "response" (any volunteer doing something in response to a crisis) and "activation" (a formal set of responses by the organization, initiated by specific and defined triggers).

We are still filling out the response descriptions at the bottom of this page:


This process is going very slowly; more volunteers would really be a boon right now.

Alternately, if someone wants to propose a more efficient way of laying out HOT's capacities in a methodical fashion, I am all ears. Thanks!
