Disaster Preparedness Training

July 20 – 23, 2021

More than 100 disasters — many of which were climate- and weather-related — have affected more than 50 million people worldwide since March 2020. Global disasters facing communities worldwide are increasing rapidly. The impact is not just in the loss of life or property, but the psychological trauma that takes place as well.

For twenty-five years, World Hope International (WHI) has responded globally to people in crisis. Proper preparation can reduce the impact of a disaster.

World Hope International will be holding a free Disaster Preparedness Training in Barbados, 20 – 23 July. This training is designed for the Barbados Defense Forces, First Responders, US and British Embassy personal, faith leaders, and civic leaders. WHI has secured qualified trainers working for Fairfax and Los Angeles County Fire Departments who are experienced in disaster relief and search and rescue. Instruction time includes in-class teaching and hands-on training.

The goals of these sessions are

  1. To provide training to First Responders and the faith community in the event of a disaster.
  2. To develop relationships with these groups and the government to highlight private sector resources available in a time of crisis.

World Hope wants to prepare groups for crisis response and lay out concrete ways for groups to serve their communities and provide physical and emotional care guidance.
