First Response Radio (FRR) is a network of radio broadcasters, NGOs and Government partners. Our members have been working in disaster areas since the Tsunami of 2004, providing critical information via radio, as aid . Our goal is to set up a radio station for the affected community within 72 hours of a disaster. The best way we have discovered to build this capacity is to equip and train teams before disaster strikes.
FRR Nepal team have now left Nepal, having helped the radio station in Dhunche get back on the air and trained local staff to develop programming to aid in the disaster recovery process.
