The FRR Nepal team have now left Nepal, having helped the radio station in Dhunche get back on the air and trained local staff to develop programming to aid in the disaster recovery process.Mike Adams felt the second quake in Delhi airport, a few hours after he left Kathmandu. All the rest of the team reported in safe, and have now returned to their home countries. FRR anticipates returning to Nepal within the year if possible, to do further training with those working with disaster affected communities.
First Response Radio (FRR) is a network of radio broadcasters, NGOs and Government partners.
Our members have been working in disaster areas since the Tsunami of 2004, providing critical information via radio, as aid. Our goal is to set up a radio station for the affected community within 72 hours of a disaster.
The best way we have discovered to build this capacity is to equip and train teams before disaster strikes.
