On learning of a Major Disaster our first step is to mobilise two members of our Disaster Aid Response Team (DARTs)

Identify Local Partners

Once on site the DARTs start making contact with the local organisations which can help them evaluate the extent of the disaster and plan a suitable response.

Our first point of contact is often Local Rotary Clubs  as their members usually have good connections throughout the community.

They can also can quickly identify other non Rotarians who will be provide local knowledge when planning our response.

Find Out What the Community Needs

As they become aware of the extent of the problem the DARTs can meet with the communities that they feel we can best assist.

Once the needs of the communities have been assessed we will:

  • Consider if one or more of our standard Aid Solutions will be a suitable response.

Implement and Review

We will then commence implementing the best response for those communities that we are supporting.

Again our contacts within the local community are invaluable as they are able to identify, and smooth out, any potential bottlenecks.

During the implementation phase it is important to continue to review

  • The communities needs.
  • The effectiveness of our solutions.
  • If any new opportunities to improve our response are identified.
