How 2 empty buckets can save a life: Bangladesh emergency response course goes local
Within the first 24 to 72 hours after a disaster, local communities are on the front-line of emergency response. Depending on location and scale of emergency, response time may vary.
 
As this Case Study explores, communities’ confidence to respond to emergencies is commonly based on available resources. However,
as CADRE participants in this case learned, basic household items can provide the foundations for emergency response materials.
 
In Srirajganj, communities worked together with CADRE instructors to add value to the course by exploring ways in which the course could be localized to accommodate their lack of emergency equipment.
