About the organization

The Support Relief Group (SRG) is a program developed by BHA to satisfy its growing need for surge capacity.

In general, about half of all SRG activations are domestic and half are overseas in various capacities. The SRG program brings on board select candidates who work for discrete periods, on an intermittent basis for no more than 250 days per calendar year, and can be deployed within hours to facilitate BHA’s response to disasters, or to backfill staff in Washington and other locations. SRG staff can be used for as little as a day or up to several months at a time. The SRG program is managed by the Surge Staffing Team in the FARO Response Resources Division.
