IMG_0774This is Dave Smith, our disaster response coordinator.


When did you arrive at HCM?
June 2014. 

What is your role?
My job assignment is HCM’s disaster preparedness and response coordinator. I spent 32 as a California Highway Patrol Officer and a paramedic assigned to our air rescue program. I also am a COT for HCM and assist with the optical program. I was also part of a DMAT (Disaster Medical Assistance Team) for the federal government as a paramedic assigned to a mobile field hospital unit.

Where did you go on your first HCM outreach?
I have traveled with HCM for several years taking my first trip to Bethleham, South Africa in 1990.

What do you enjoy most about working with HCM?
What I enjoy most about working at HCM is the joy of the Lord knowing I am doing something for the kingdom of God. I love the fact we have daily prayer and devotions and I get to work with a team of Christian brothers and sisters who have the same calling of compassion to take the gospel and medical help worldwide as God directs.

  1. Hi Dave,

    I feel most blessed to have met you and worked on several HCM team trips with you. I pray that the Lord continues to bless you as you carry out the calling that God has placed in your life. You have the most humble heart of any team member that I have ever met.
