Many disasters in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean affect multiple countries, and happen without warning. Preparedness is the only way to mitigate devastating consequences of a large-scale disaster. Successful emergency response requires all stakeholder participation.
On July 20, the Malteser International Americas’ Team will train members of the Order of Malta during a one-day Introduction to Emergency Response Workshop and simulation exercise in Jacksonville, Florida.
The workshop will: 1) provide an overview of Malteser International’s scope of relief and development work; 2) discuss the complex world of humanitarian action; 3) identify best emergency response practices and discuss gaps and needs addressed during a disaster, and 4) offer participants a practical understanding of how to provide safe drinking water to the affected population in the aftermath of a disaster. The water purification equipment “ASPEN 3300” will be introduced as the most effective and reliable option to water purification in emergency response.
