Is the United States proactive or retroactive when it comes to natural disasters and pandemics?

BOTH... IT depends on what the problem is and what is happening..

Until about 12 days ago Trump was telling the world Covid-19 was a Democrat hoax?????
Too late to react now America has the biggest number of infections in the world and the third largest death toll.

Primarily it is reactive, it waits for something to hit first, and then they start a mad scramble.

Both. Being pro-active is limited in scope by definition, since one cannot protect against everything. One cannot have treatments or vaccines for diseases that have not appeared yet.
Being prepared to react is something that is much more practical.
Even then, preparations can be overwhelmed by something huge, like the novel coronavirus.
The Trump-hating dumbmasses who rant hysterically about Trump's actions are only doing so for political gain and because their impotent imbecility needs venting.
They have no valid or honest complaints.

well, you cant live in fear and hide from everything .. the US can mount a response to things like no other, that is the lesson to be learned from freedom ..

"Reactive" would be the word you're looking for, and yes, that's the one that applies here.

Retroactive. America is always retroactive. Because preparing for something might just cost a few dollars of the profits.

Who's the first country to help when a country faces a natural disaster?

Relative to what standard? Other nations, or some arbitrary notion of absolute perfection?
