FRR Philippines just wrapped up a ten day deployment in Casiguran, Aurora responding to Typhoon Lando. The team broadcasted public service announcements (PSAs) coming from the PDRRMC as well as humanitarian agencies in the area, psychosocial programs, interviews with government officials as well as with humanitarian workers and affected communities, daily weather updates (courtesy of Panahon TV) and key messages on food, WASH, health and shelter. They also passed out 100 solar powered radios to the community.
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.
