Community Action for Disaster Response (CADRE)

The CADRE program is an expansion of the PEER program to teach people how to deal with mass casualty incidents, provide triage and first aid to many injured people, and carry out light search and rescue operations. These skills may all be necessary following a flood, landslide or earthquake, where a community can be devastated and many buildings may have collapsed. The CADRE courses aims to enhance existing emergency first aid trainings for communities. It adds further skills and some technical knowledge, to help community responders’ deal with the complex, traumatic and volatile situation they may face.

  • Understanding hazards, emergencies and disasters in the community

  • First Aid and Basic Life Support
  • Incident Command systems and Triage
  • Dead Body Management
