Our approach to Disaster Management is empowering communities to take charge of their own recovery. Preparedness and recovery is vital to any disaster management plan. Disaster risk reduction starts with communities to identify the most significant hazards in their environment and to understand the patterns of vulnerability to them. Communities can then devise ways to manage the hazards and reduce vulnerability. This process, known as Community-based Disaster Management, empowers communities using a few standard tools.

We also provide for the distribution of Red Cross relief supplies as needed, provide family tracing and links as needed, communications support, and personnel support in a mass casualty event if requested, and launch international appeals as needed.

As a globally trusted organization and as an auxiliary to the Bermuda Government, we are a member of the Emergency Measures Organization sub-committee.
