Lions ALERT Program

Lions with BoxesThe Lions ALERT Program

Lions are continually involved in disaster relief around the world. The Lions ALERT program strives to provide specific direction to the 46,000 Lions clubs and help them to be more efficient in providing short and long term support to disaster victims.

The objective of the Lions ALERT Program is to develop a plan of action in case of a Level One (affecting a few people), Level Two (affecting a community) or Level Three emergency (affecting hundreds or thousands of people in a region).

The emergency may be a natural disaster, a man-made disaster or a public healthcare crisis such as a large-scale (pandemic) influenza (flu) outbreak.

To develop a Lions ALERT plan, appoint a Lions ALERT chairperson who will assemble a team of volunteers and emergency service professionals.

To request or offer humanitarian assistance (both human services and material resources), view Lion-2-Lion: Resource Assistance Database
