Challenge

The school communities, affected by the earthquakes occurred in CDMX, Puebla, Morelos, Oaxaca, and Chiapas, located in vulnerable zones have less possibilities to gain access to healthy environments.

Solution

1. Promoting a participative diagnostic after the disaster in the affected school communities. 2. Implementing reconstruction actions in the schools located in vulnerable zones within the communities affected by a natural disaster through the program Tools for Knowledge of Fondo Unido Mexico. 3. Presenting actions that promote the participation focused to the prevention and attention of natural disasters in the damaged school communities.

Long-Term Impact

Establish community civil protection brigades: trained in risk detection, disaster care and prevention, incident command, psychological first aid, and tactical search and rescue. Encourage the community to know its risks, its vulnerability factors and how to prevent them. Ensure that the community has clearly identified their risk areas, the shelter, and their brigades. Have a temporary shelter for the community in the event of a disaster. Improve community response time to a disaster.
