OUR COMMUNITIES OUR PRIORITY!
Tamale, Ghana, 00233
Primary mission is to utilize people within the community in the event of an emergency where the trained professionals are overwhelmed with their duties and need volunteers that are trained to come and assist so that the weight of their jobs does not become to much.
I entreat that we develop the spirit of Volunteerism!
There are International C.E.R.T. type programs usually under Civil Defence in that country some listed here http://www.cert-la.com/links/international.htm It is best to check your local county Disaster Emergency Agencies and plans.
