Challenge

Disasters should no longer be treated as individual, isolated events. Instead, one must consider if the event may expand and endanger surrounding regions, or quite possibly impact all humanity.

Solution

Establishing a regional exchange platform that provides comprehensive disaster prevention information, training, and support, and building partnerships for disaster prevention are currently the most important issues for the Taiwan Red Cross. Relief work is complex, so disaster response must be planned fully in advance in order to be thoroughly prepared.

Long-Term Impact

Since the establishment of the Central Emergency Operation Center in July 2004, the Society has deployed staff to the Center to assist with the provision of temporary housing for disaster victims and the allocation of relief supplies. All of our branches have been incorporated into local government disaster response systems, offering manpower and relief supplies during relief missions.
