Today we mark the day, acknowledged annually, dedicated to global Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).
This week the British government announced that face coverings will be mandatory for all who travel on public transport in England from 15th June 2020.
Ultimate Facemask is a product series Rescue Global is now offering to our clients, all businesses, the general public and healthcare professionals, worldwide.
Next month, Rescue Global will be presenting and delivering training at the 6th Secours Expo on Rescue, Emergency and Prevention in Paris. This year, the expo offers a new concept, focussed around the crisis theme cycle of preparation, prevention, alert, emergency, post-emergency and solidarity.
Rescue Global (RG) have been based at the NEMA (National Emergency Management Agency of the Bahamas) office and the National Training Centre Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) in Nassau. The EOC is the central command and control facility responsible for carrying out the principles of emergency preparedness and emergency management at a strategic level, and is where representatives of the responding agencies have been based to coordinate their efforts over the past two weeks since Hurricane Dorian made landfall.
Rescue Global have been supporting the Hurricane Dorian response in the Bahamas for the last two weeks from the UK by enabling national-led response efforts, our stakeholder network and our partner organisations on the ground.
24 Commando Royal Engineers (24Cdo) provide the military engineering support to 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines. Held at Very High Readiness to deploy worldwide, highly trained commando engineers using modern technology enable the Royal Marines to understand, live, move and fight. Rescue Global believes that these Commando Sappers (engineers) are the perfect choice for Disaster Response Operations as, like Rescue Global disaster response personnel, their training allows them to be self-sufficient anywhere in the world. Their current Troop in the Bahamas, as well as working from (ship) Mounts Bay, they remain on the ground to work through the night, rather than return to the ship.
Rescue Global, the University of Oxford and the Zooniverse are once again joining forces to relaunch The Planetary Response Network in the wake of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. Last year, we jointly deployed to rapidly map and damage assess the islands worst hit in the Caribbean following Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The project saw 6,028 global volunteers make 278,541 classifications of pre-and post storm satellite imagery that helped create “heat maps” of damaged and affected areas potentially requiring urgent assistance.
