Disaster preparedness in your district
Encourage your district leadership to appoint a disaster recovery contact person or committee that will organize a response both within the district and to international offers of assistance. Compile a list of local relief organizations in your district that could be potential project partners or recipients of international Rotary club and district contributions. Ask these organizations to share their expertise and begin planning appropriate disaster preparedness projects and consider training a volunteer disaster response team.
