Time: 5:35 PM - 5:55 PM
The National Guard is a unique component of the U.S. military that serves both the community and the nation at the call of the President of the United States or any state governor. A case study approach was used to describe the lived experiences of resilience and servant-leadership from the perspective of five Air National Guard responders to the March 22, 2014 State Route 530 Mudslide in Washington State. The findings offer insight into issues of stress and distress in response to disasters, potential impacts to the individual well being and continued readiness of disaster responders and leadership implications for future response efforts.
