The Legion of Frontiersmen is an international, volunteer, public service organization founded in the early 1900s in the United Kingdom. The vision of Roger Pocock, its founder, was that the Legion would be outriders of the British Empire, composed of hardy frontiersmen who could gather information and alert the British government to threats to the empire. Pocock's original vision has shaped the Legion's current mission in the United States, gathering and disseminating information to support response to and recovery from disasters and major emergencies globally.
The Legion of Frontiersmen in the United States is a non-sectarian, all volunteer, membership based organization, and provides its services to voluntary and governmental organizations with disaster response roles at no charge (see our statement of Who We Are). Membership is open without regard to geographical location, and we can support recognized disaster response organizations in English speaking countries. We operate using National Incident Management System Incident Command System organization and principles. All of our services are Internet based.
The Legion of Frontiersmen in the United States is a member organization of the Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active In Disaster and actively supports the core principles of the VOAD movement: Cooperation, Communication, Coordination, and Collaboration.
