In October 2017 FRR trainers Mike Adams and Alan Fotheringham were in Kathmandu, Nepal to do 'radio in disaster' training with Radio Nepal. Working in partnership with BBC Media Action – Nepal, FRR was helping to strengthen their resilience through four practical days of class work and a one day field trial with the Suitcase Radio equipment.
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 to build this capacity is to equip & train teams before disaster strikes.
