We're Nerds!

Operation Hammond is an international, non-profit organization of like-minded individuals within the anime, sci-fi, fantasy, and pop-culture convention communities. We are dedicated to bringing awareness of first aid, emergency preparedness, and training to both those who attend and the staff of the communities we serve.


Our most prominent branch of service is medical response. We have many trained volunteers who are qualified and ready to be an addition to your existing safety infrastructure. Many of our qualified, and nerdy responders could be on standby at your event. We could be just one call or email away.


Operation Hammond is an American Safety and Health Institute training center. We offer various teaching services, and we’re happy to conduct an event-themed educational panel. Don’t hesitate to ask for more information.


We have been supporting many different conventions, and events for over six years now. With this time under our belt, we have the know-how to advise on various topics upon request.


Operation Hammond works to recruit volunteers who share common interests with the communities we serve. This way, you know you’re receiving help from someone who can relate to your interests.
