THE FRR team arrived in Dunche on Wednesday, and Radio Rasuwa was up and running an hour later, with live and interactive programming from a table outside the station – which caused lots of community interest. Programming began with updates from Govt officials and any news from the field from NGO’s, and asking the affected population what kind of information they wanted the most. As it becomes available advice on water, shelter, food and access to healthcare will be included.
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.
