Fundamental Disaster Response Course 2016

The Fundamental Disaster Response Course (FDRC) 2016 , organised by the Disaster Medicine Subcommittee of the Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine and supported by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute, was completed with 18 participants from the period of March - July 2016. The course consisted of five full day sessions (eight hours per session, 40 hours in total). Participants included emergency medicine physicians and nurses, and ambulance officers from the Hong Kong Fire Service Department.

In order to capture a more comprehensive and global view of the humanitarian landscape for local disaster responders, the participants attended a workshop organized by the Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) Humanitarian Education Center on 16 July 2016, and paid a visit to the HKRC deployment warehouse. The workshop enhanced participants’ understanding of the technical and practical aspects of disaster preparation.
