Event description
Humanity First medical disaster response teams have been responding to disasters around the globe for the last 25 years.

About this Event

Humanity First provides training in Disaster Response by an experienced international faculty including specialists from the NHS UK and Ambulance Services. Our Disaster Response Course provides delegates with an experience as near as possible to providing care in a disaster environment.

Some of the topics we'll be teaching you:

  • Disaster response training exercises
  • Disaster classification
  • Response coordination
  • Safety & Security
  • Inter agency communication
  • Mentorship & team building
  • Principles of surgical management
  • Anaesthetics
  • Paediatrics
  • Women's Health in disasters

Humanity First deploys multidisciplinary teams including medics, nurses, paramedics, allied health professionals and logistics personnel who fulfil roles including liaison, communications and security. Accordingly, medical training is not a prerequisite to attend our Disaster Response Course.

Participation in our DR course is compulsory for anyone wishing to volunteer as part of a HF Disaster Response team and is recommended for anyone interested in volunteering with our Global Health Programs. HF staff returning from disaster response missions have felt that this course provided them with essential skills to manage in the field.

The 2020 Humanity First Disaster Response Course will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Leicester, April 3-5th 2020 and costs £260 (£190 concession available to nurses and allied health professionals).

About us

As a result of 25 years experience Humanity First developed a Medical disaster response course to train its volunteers in best practice in the field of disaster response.

Our team includes experts in the field of search and rescue, fire, ambulance, surgery, public health and paediatrics, and they bring the expertise of their experience responding to disasters including the recent earthquakes in Pakistan, Haiti and Nepal as well as the recent Tsunami in Indonesia.

Interested in joining Humanity First's Global Health program? HF's Disaster Response Course is a great way to get involved. The course is designed to prepare you to work in one of the most extreme environments and is the best way to get to know HF and our teams.
