Event Description

IDR 1300 -Community Based Disaster Response

is intended to foster robust and resilient communities in the face of a disaster. This course is the follow up to IDR 1100 thus, a prerequisite requirement before joining. It is designed to equip trainees with the knowledge and skills needed to respond to a disaster within their community.

Participants will gain a basic understanding of coordinating multiple teams in a disaster zone, while simultaneously collaborating with larger NGOs and other international entities. Trainees will obtain skills in conducting timely and accurate assessments, and be introduced to basic disaster response skills such as: fire/flood suppression, light urban search & rescue, medical triage. 

At the end of the module, the trainee will be able establish a preconfigured base of operations, called a Local Coordination Center (LCC). An established LCC in a community is used during a disaster as a base for response teams. This is extremely necessary in order to aid a community during a disaster. In addition, the deployment of Rapid Assessment Teams (RATs) will ensure a constant flow of data from the actual ground to facilitate accurate information.

A simulated Exercise will place participants in a disaster scenario where they will have to coordinate, manage, and respond as a team in a "disaster zone." This exercise allows trainees to put into practice what they have learned throughout the course.
