"RedR - Registered Engineers for Disaster Relief" |
RedR Canada - Registered Engineers for Disaster Relief - is a new organization in Canada which provides opportunities for Canadian Engineers to contribute their time and expertise to respond to disaster situations around the world. Founded in the UK in 1979, RedR also provides specialized training programs to relief workers in humanitarian assistance, personal security, and infrastructure needs in disaster situations. Canadian Engineers now have a vehicle to assist those most in need when man-made or natural disasters occur - such as wars, earthquakes, floods or famines - by applying their training in water, wastewater, transportation, logistics and project management to help restore life-supporting infrastructure.
Dave Chalcroft, P.Eng., Canada's Chair, Board of Directors for RedR will describe RedR's activities and what an individual needs to do to become involved.
