Three MapAction volunteers were in Chiang Mai, Thailand, this week, participating in an International Search and Rescue Advisory Group (INSARAG) earthquake simulation exercise involving over 400 participants from 27 countries.
The MapAction team provided maps to assist the coordination of the response to the realistic disaster scenario.
Thanks to the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance for supporting this important disaster preparedness work.
