上文提到,教研中心的民意調查發現,過半(54%)受訪者無為擔心的災難作好準備;其中勞動工人、退休人士及料理家務者/家庭主婦的準備百分比,為各行業中最低。除了未有充分準備外,原來這些群組在尋找防災及應對資訊[1]時,亦多感到困難。當大家認為香港的資訊相當流通和發達時,仍然有22%的受訪者,未必能掌握正確有效的災難資訊。                                                               圖一 尋找防災資訊難易度

        最近,在郊野實在發生了太多不幸事故,有墮崖,有墮澗失救。想說:「玩到死」並不是福氣,而是為身邊人帶來無限的痛苦!而且郊野位處偏遠,真的出事了,比在城市出事更難救援和治理。玩郊野怎樣能夠安全一點?不厭其煩,也要不斷重申,希望搜救人員可以出動少一點。

我在急症室工作了35年,2017年到達退休年齡,退休後一直在不同的大學擔任客席講師的工作。最近香港推行全民疫苗接種計劃,香港護理專科學院邀請我到社區疫苗接種中心擔任疫苗醫生,可以再次重臨前線照顧有需要人士,這是一件既富意義又令我興奮的事。這段時間在疫苗中心遇到不同市民,我覺得當中有些經驗值得在這裡分享,希望藉此讓公眾掌握更多接種疫苗的相關資訊,並釋除大家心中的一些疑慮。   個案1: 暈針 原來有不少接種者都會出現「暈針」情況, 他們在接種疫苗後5-10鐘內面色變得蒼白、脈搏和血壓下降、手腳冰冷出汗、並且失去知覺暈倒,而這並不是弱不禁風的人的專利,事實上不論種族、年齡、高矮肥瘦或是身體強弱都有機會「暈針」,而且當中還有一個特別現象 —暈針似是有傳染性,當一個接種者看見另一接種者暈倒,自己也很有可能接著暈倒,然後接種中心內就會看到有好幾位接種者接連暈倒,若不了解這個現象而身處現場的話很可能會被嚇倒。其實要預防「暈針」的處理方法很簡單,我通常會讓容易暈針的接種者躺在輪床上接種,然後躺著休息15分鐘,便可以預防暈針的情況了。如果大家擔心自己或身邊的人「暈針」,可以考慮要求疫苗中心提供這個安排。   個案2: 新冠狀病毒康復者

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute and the Department of Early Childhood Education, Education University of Hong Kong are currently conducting a research project entitled "Disaster Education in Action: The Effects and Challenges in Hong Kong Kindergarten Settings". The study aims to investigate the impact of disaster education programmes on young children’s learning. In-service kindergarten teachers are invited to participate in this survey (available in Chinese only), which will take about 10-15 minutes. The first 300 eligible participants who have completed the questionnaire will receive a $50 gift voucher as a token of our appreciation.
