Emergency & Relief Training

Providing relief services for emergency situations takes a wide array of personal skills and group support. Although each relief worker may have a very different role in a crisis, every individual must understand disaster protocol.

Through Emergency & Relief training, IRM prepares community and professional staff of development organizations to meet the needs of suffering victims and to function as an effective team.

Every disaster setting has its own hazards. Health hazards follow all large-scale disasters, particularly in third-world countries where hygiene and medical care are limited. Thus training of Emergency and Relief workers plays an important role on disease prevention and safe rehabilitation.
