The NTSB’s Transportation Disaster Assistance Division (TDA) assists with planning an effective family assistance response following a transportation accident. We accomplish this goal during the preparedness phase of the disaster management cycle by working closely with:
- local, state, tribal and federal government agencies;
- nongovernmental and private organizations; and
- transportation operators.
TDA specialists collaborate with the family assistance response community to ensure key concepts and operational aspects of a family assistance operation are understood and implemented during a response.
