Community Disaster Response Teams (CDRT)

Community Disaster Response Team (CDRT) training is designed to prepare you to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of an emergency. This training covers basic skills that are important to know in an emergency when responder agencies are delayed in providing assistance. With training and practice and by working as a team, you will be able to do the greatest good for the greatest number of victims after a disaster, while protecting yourself from becoming a victim.

Enhanced Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment (eVCA)

eVCA uses various participatory tools to gauge people’s exposure to and capacity to resist natural hazards. It is an integral part of disaster preparedness and contributes to the creation of community-based disaster preparedness programmes at the rural and urban grass-roots level.

National Disaster Response Teams (NDRT)

To improve their response and capacities when facing a crisis or disaster, all National Red Cross Red Crescent Societies must have well-trained and experienced human resources along with standardized selection criteria and harmonized methodologies to ensure that the same degree of professionalism exists in their National Response Teams (NRT).

National Intervention Teams (NIT)

NITs Training offers in-depth information about the key areas of disaster preparedness and response. It covers logistics, the restoration of family links (tracing and messaging), damage assessment and evaluation, procurement, shelter management, and distribution. The NIT training is a mandatory component for any volunteer who wishes to join the Regional Intervention Team (RIT).

Mobile Data Collection (MDC)

Mobile Data Collection Training provides National Societies with the skills required to collect data with the use of mobile data collection software that is specially designed for humanitarian environments.

Preparedness for Effective Response (PER)

The PER Approach offers different and adaptable ways of examining a National Society’s response mechanism. With the appropriate guidance, technical teams, rapid response teams and partners can use the PER mechanism for anticipatory, immediate or post action in operations as well as for long term capacity enhancement.
