Through our decade of experience working on the frontlines of disaster and emergency events, we’ve witnessed the need for nonprofit entities to step in and assist government agencies and other organizations in their mission to provide relief at the local, state and federal levels.
It’s a driving force behind our decision to convert into a nonprofit, realigning our business goals in order to reach the most at-risk and underserved patients; partner with agencies who share our goals and values; and maximize the overall impact on each and every deployment.
Through these partnerships and distribution of personnel and critical resources, we aim to close the gap in essential health and human services while helping to solve the critical shortages of healthcare personnel nationwide.
When disaster strikes, you need the right partner to weather the storm. Krucial Rapid Response specializes in high volume, emergency response deployment, driven by a mission to serve others at their greatest time of need. With our pool of over 400,000 clinical and non-clinical reservists, we respond to natural disasters and medical surges with speed and quality at a 100% fill rate within 48 hours.
Since 2011, we’ve deployed over 50,000 personnel and covered hundreds of thousands of shifts – from the EF5 tornado in Joplin, Mo., to Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, Hurricane Harvey in Houston, COVID 19 surges across the country, border surge activations in Texas and more – when disaster strikes, Krucial is there.
Types of responses:
- Medical Crisis
There are an estimated 38 million Americans who live in at-risk rural areas, and according to the American Hospital Association, about 20% of all hospitals across the country expect worker shortages to reach dire levels. The patient-to-registered nurse ratio in isolated rural hospitals is 7.3, and the nursing skill mix was lowest in isolated rural hospitals. The stresses put on hospital systems as a result of the pandemic are leading to employment shortages, especially in these areas, and the employment gap is negatively impacting the quality of care patients in these communities receive.
Krucial Rapid Response is committed to helping efficiently and effectively fill the gap, mobilizing and deploying qualified personnel to rural areas across the U.S. and providing the level of care patients deserve.

America is facing a nursing shortage. Amid a vast increase in the number of patients, employment levels for registered nurses declined by 3 percent between 2020 and 2021, the largest decline in at last 20 years.
Burnout from COVID 19 and struggles with mental health within the field contribute to the dipping employment levels. These are problems that must be addressed within the healthcare system, and at Krucial Rapid Response we’re committed to working with local and national agencies to improve conditions and address mental health.
A part of Krucial’s mission to help communities in their greatest time of need includes the emphasis on growing the nursing profession. At its core, we’ve seen the profound impact nurses have in cities and towns across the country. We recognize their tireless dedication to all aspects of their job, and we celebrate their unwavering commitment to helping others.
We need caring, smart, attentive nurses out in the field, and we need to take care of them with as much respect and appreciation as they take care of their patients.
