Communication is like a backbone of any relief operation in complex
emergencies. We have witnessed its importance during earthquake
relief operation 2005 in Pakistan when there was no mean of
communication available and our radios remained operational. A few
handhelds, a couple of portable VHF radios and some home-brew
antennas played a vital role keeping us in-touch with other teams,
to our Base of Operation Mansehra and HQ in Islamabad concurrently.
Undoubtedly, emergency communication is one of the significant
segments of the entire endeavor for establishing an efficient and
effective mechanism of disaster management.
The objectives of the courses:
These courses aim
to provide practical models and methods to assist aid agencies and
other stake holders in the field and to establish an EmRad hub to
manage radio traffic and relay imperative messages. Gradually, the
audience will learn, using handhelds and portables, staying tuned
with each other, concerned nodes and offices on assigned
frequencies. They will also be taught the use of repeaters to avoid
attenuations and to gain optimized efficacy and efficiency with out
depletion of time, during an emergency relief operation.
