The International Disaster Response Network
IDRN 1500 - Community Based Disaster Management
Type: Direct Instruction
Prerequisites: IDRN 1300
Description: IDRN 1500 is the final level of training offered by the IDRN. It is a higher level of training providing more theoretical and conceptual aspects of Disaster Response. The goal of IDRN 1500 is to introduce the trainees to the fundamentals of Community Based Disaster Management (CBDM) as an integrated network system. All communities are vulnerable to a variety of hazards. CBDM provides a structure for anticipating and dealing with Preparedness, Prevention, Response, Recovery and Mitigation of those hazards.
International disaster response involves participants at all governmental levels: the private sector, non-governmental (voluntary) organizations, and individuals. Activities are geared according to phases before, during, and after an emergency or disaster events. The effectiveness of CBDM rests on the ability of this network to collaborate its efforts while simultaneously mobilizing assets and resources across all sectors. The IDRN 1500 Curriculum provides numerous techniques and methodologies for increasing network capacity and operating effectively at the community level. All of these processes occur while dialoging and engaging all sectors involved in response initiatives.
The IDRN 1500 Course is tailored towards community leaders and decision makers. It creates awareness of the “bigger picture” of disaster response and shows local leaders how they fit into the larger process. In addition, it shows how leaders and organizations can engage with the professional and international response community.
