My name is Alekz Londos. I am the C.E.O. of Advanced Disaster Relief. I have 16 years of experience as a photojournalist. After being a witness to so much destruction, death, mass suffering, and failed humanitarian responses, I was driven to make a difference and became involved in emergency services. I have independently provided international disaster relief support and immediate medical care to critical areas before the military and multinational organizations arrived. I have done search and rescue, body recovery, psychological debriefing, debris removal, risk mitigation, and rebuilt infrastructures. I focus my mission objectives on benefitting humanity and our environment. I then write inspiring stories and utilize mass media to help raise awareness and compassion towards tragic events. I began my career working for major TV news stations in Reno, Nevada before becoming an independent, freelance photojournalist in 2002. My images have been featured on CNN, NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC, KSBW, Associated Press (AP), World News (WN), Philippine National News, and many other news outlets. I have been published in newspapers 34 times: The Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, LA Times, Aptos Times, Santa Cruz Sentinel, Mercury News, Reno Gazette Journal, Santa Cruz Good Times, and Reno News & Review. I have been interviewed by Anonymous (the international cyber hacking group) as well as KSCO, KTOK, and KRXA radio stations. I took a variety of courses at Cabrillo College in 2008 and years later had accumulated 81 units. I mostly studied emergency medical training, environmental science, horticulture, sustainability, and renewable energy and resources, all of which I could apply to my career. I completed the Red Cross course in Santa Cruz and become a disaster relief volunteer in 2009. I also completed the Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) course at the Felton Fire Station in 2010. I now consider myself a hybrid photojournalist, environmentalist, humanitarian, and activist. I self-deployed to hazmat cleanups, lightning storms, wildfires, floods, sinkholes, landslides, snowstorms, car accidents, and a commuter train crash. I was in New Orleans during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the Philippines during the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan. I have been through three other hurricanes as well: Gustav in 2008, as well as Isaac and Sandy in 2013. I also went tornado chasing in Oklahoma in 2013. I was in Ghana during the peak of the Ebola Outbreak in 2014. I volunteered in Nepal during the earthquake aftermath of 2015. I lived in the epicenter for a month on my own while treating medical patients and helping the community recover. I went to Erbil, Iraq in 2016, where I brought supplies to the Peshmerga military, distributed medical aid to the clinics, and volunteered in Syrian refugee camps. Throughout my missions, I have been a witness to the unimaginable, widespread destruction of catastrophic man-made and natural disasters. I am extremely saddened by the egotism, greed, and lack of compassion by both people and corrupt corporations that are contributing to the destructive impact of industrialized nations. In this moment, we are all witnessing the rapid disruption and alteration of our planet's biosphere and we are still carelessly wasting resources and destroying the Earth's fragile ecosystems. Inherently, we have the responsibility to take initiative in being accepting and supportive of our transition towards an ecologically-sustainable global society. This comprehensive Resource Guide is an educational text of my knowledge, experience and yet another desperate attempt to present society with compelling solutions to the challenges we all face. It details a wide range of subjects that will not only benefit those working in emergency services and government-appointed positions, but also the general public. The 6X9 inch paperback book is 200 pages with 167 charts, graphs and extraordinary color pictures.
