DISASTER RISK REDUCTION & RESPONSE

Rescue Global works hard to live in a world where disasters are less impactful and are responded to by national or regional resources. Our approach works to alleviate the negative effects that an international response can sometimes have, such as disempowering a country in the long term, whilst providing much needed relief in the short term

ACTIVITY

OPERATION COMPRENSIÓN – DEPLOYMENT TO MEXICO, OCTOBER 2015

Hurricane Patricia, the strongest hurricane ever recorded at sea, made landfall on the southern Pacific coast of Mexico on the 23rd October. Rescue Global immediately provided mentoring, command, control and communications support to our partners in the region, as well as activated partners in the development and application of technologies for the management of major events. Later, we deployed a Liaison, Mentoring and Training (LMT) element to support and assist CaDRA partners in their relief efforts alongside the Mexican government’s Civil Protection force. Read more
