Description

Essential to the resilience of any community in the face of disaster, whether natural or man-made, is a state of preparedness that includes critical knowledge of resources and safety protocols. The Disaster Preparedness Outreach Specialist leads the community education arm of Sewa International’s Disaster Services, reaching out to both adults AND children; because, children who learn to be resilient in the face of emergencies become adults who ARE resilient in the face of emergencies.

During Blue-Sky periods, these Members fan out into the community (with a specific focus on the marginalized, the underserved, seniors, children and those with special needs) to educate the population on the importance of preparedness and community networking to increase resilience during a disaster. These efforts are intended to mitigate damages, save lives and enhance the recovery potential of any community impacted by disaster.
