Presentation opportunity for Scout Groups in Norfolk

SARAID provides specialist Disaster Response Teams and all members are unpaid volunteers.

In April 2015 a was team deployed to Nepal following the earthquake that devastated the country where carried out Urban Search and Rescue work, since then they have returned to the country to carry out disaster risk reduction training.

Most recently SARAID carried out training in Nepal with their Scout Association and ran training for their newly formed Scout Medical and Rescue Teams (SMART) who will deploy during a disaster such as an earthquake and will use their local knowledge and new skills to save lives.

If any of the Scout groups in Norfolk would like a presentation on the work carried out please email Gary Francis gary.francis@saraid.org.uk. Further details on www.saraid.org.uk.
