How it works

How do First Response Radio Teams begin broadcasting critical information within 72 hours of a disaster?


  • First Response Radio Teams use the Critical Information Matrix to identify the information needed, at the time it is needed.

  •  First Response Radio Teams have portable equipment that can easily be transported into any disaster area. The “Radio in a Suitcase” solution is packed in three cases, each weighing less than 23Kg.

  • First Response Radio Teams are trained to understand and use the Critical Information Matrix and the “Radio in a Suitcase” equipment at 8 day workshops which include a 3 day field trial, simulating disaster conditions.

  • Each First Response Radio Team monitors disaster situations in their own area and  makes their own deployment decisions.
