Sendai Risk Rangers
Would you like to become a Disaster Risk Ranger?
A new program is being launched this summer hosted by HCSEG. A group of local high school students will have the opportunity to:
- Learn about the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction;
- Learn about natural and human-made hazards;
- Learn home hazard detective skills;
- Learn how to identify risks
- Develop risk reduction skills; and,
- Develop a local risk reduction project and action plan.
The workshop will be held from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Monday, August 13 -16 and August 18. Lunch will be provided. The first four days will be devoted to learning about hazards and developing risk reduction skills and strategies. Participants will select a project of their choice and draft a plan. On Saturday, the project action plan will be presented and certificates awarded to all active participants.
