Resurrected by the Council under Decree Order 10, the Dai Corps are to be the premier disaster response & poverty relief force of the Dai people.
In Dai Corps parlance, the service operations are divided between two primary campaigns.
- Operation Gideon: This campaign serves to assist stationed communities with: providing soup kitchens to provide hot meals to the needy; food production gardening operations; sheltering the poor and homelessness remediation operations; chaplaincy-based counseling services; and limited medical clinic services, if available.
- Operation Exodus: This campaign is the premier disaster response and relief service that made Dai Corps famous. Whereas disaster relief operations mirror poverty relief operations like Operation Gideon, disaster response operations are much more intense, often requiring: armed security operations to protect disaster camps and secure disaster zones; the importing of supplies into hazard zones and the evacuation of disaster victims under dangerous circumstances; disaster search & rescue (DSAR) and emergency medical service (EMS) response operations in hostile areas; and working with military and incident command (ICS) superiors while operating in the disaster theater.
- CERT Teams Under the Barons: Recently the Barons were authorized to organize and operate small CERT disaster teams to serve their specific communities not requiring state level services.
Many enter service in the Dai Corps as Operation Gideon specialists. After mastering the work skills offered in the poverty relief field, these individuals later transfer to Operation Exodus and enter service in disaster relief after running through rigorous, highly-specialized basic training to prepare them for duty in disaster zone operations. After a tour of duty in a disaster zone, a few disaster relief specialists find their calling to become disaster response operatives and receive further training to become disaster zone security specialists, DSAR specialists, EMS Paramedics, and even commissioned officers of their own forces.
As of the Regent’s Speech to the authorities and the ministerial alliance of Ruidoso on behalf of the Dai Corps, this general structure of command, rank and file is meant to be applied to all future Dai disaster response entities:
COMMANDER: Serves as President and Commanding Officer over the entire disaster response force.
CAPTAIN: Serves as the Vice-President and Executive Officer over the disaster response force. Also serves as the COO or general operations manager and ensures that all aspects of the Dai Corps are operating properly and are ready to roll upon receiving the call to duty.
LIEUTENANT OF TRAINING: Arranges for and executes the training for new recruits. In the beginning I would recommend new recruits serving within their communities in roles similar to those that they would serve in the disaster field: Providing meals to those in need, emergency housing for displaced families, transporting supplies and equipment, safety, threat recognition, security service, and medical service. Once these basics have been mastered promote these recruits to train for disaster field service- First Aid, Self-defense, IFOC Field Chaplaincy, and the FEMA ICS courses. Those that show the aptitude, interest, or experience promote them to field security, search and rescue, or EMS service training to develop this capability and deploy when it is ready.
LIEUTENANT OF CHAPLAINS CORP: This officer, a chaplain, will oversee and lead the disaster relief effort of the Dai Corps. There should be sergeants, preferably also chaplains, that oversee smaller teams that operate specifically in proving food supplies and meals, providing emergency shelter in disaster camps, minor non-emergency medical care, chaplaincy-based counseling and grief support services, and camp security services.
LIEUTENANT OF DISASTER RESPONSE SERVICES: This officer, preferably trained and experienced in law enforcement, rescue, paramedic, and military services, will oversee sergeants and their teams specializing in disaster field security (preferably law enforcement officers), DSAR (disaster search and rescue), and paramedics (various EMT levels).
LIEUTENANTS OF OUTPOSTS: As the Dai Corps grows, outposts are set up in the surrounding Counties with Lieutenants overseeing teams of the above capabilities.
LIEUTENANTS OF COMMAND OPS: These officers serve as the Secretary and the Treasurer overseeing internal information management and processing of the organization, and financial resource management, accounting, and reporting respectively. Distribution of information to the public and fundraising management would also fall under the domain of these officers and their staff working underneath them.
LIEUTENANT OF MAINTENANCE- This officer would be responsible for the repair and maintenance of organization’s vehicle fleet and equipment as well as any real property that the organization may rent or own. The Sergeants and teams underneath them would essentially ensure that all vehicles and equipment are at response-ready status at location and at outposts with vehicles. This was not available during the original Dei Corps and the inclusion of such a unit has proven invaluable since their introduction.
This is meant to be the future structure of both the New Mexico, Colorado, and Arizona forces as they are organized in 2024.
