Welcome

Welcome to the official homepage of the Wisconsin-1 Disaster Medical Assistance Team (WI-1 DMAT)!

WI-1 DMAT is part of the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS), a federally-coordinated system that provides medical capabilities in the event of a large-scale emergency that overwhelms normal local medical resources.

A DMAT consists of medical personnel, logistical and administrative personnel, and all of the equipment required to deliver medical care in austere environments.  NDMS is administered through the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response in the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

The WI-1 DMAT is supported by a partnership of several state and national agencies, including NDMS, the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs.

The WI-1 DMAT also has academic partnerships with the Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, along with the state’s three major academic hospitals – Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital, and University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics.
