  • ISMEP Project is also implementing these projects with effective cooperation programs with various stakeholders
  • As you know,ISMEP has 3 main components On the slide you may see the social activities and implementations for every component. Today we will share with you this year’s activities. You can find all the detils at the ISMEP brosure, Community Based Disaster Management in İstanbul, prepared for your visit.
  • The main objective of the project is to disseminate the mitigation culture at the individual, family and institutional level and thus to ensure that communities are prepared for and resistant against disastersFor this purpose, a variety of communication and training programs has been prepared and put into action.
  • With the campaign our basic objective is building informed and skilled community potential on disasters and establishing the local disaster volunteering system of İstanbul under the umbrella of Istanbul Provincial Disaster and Emergency Directorate.
  • To reach our aims we planned a road map consisting of three phases:Firstly, we made a needs assessment and prepared a Strategic PlanSecondly, we prepared training modules on 15 different subjects and designed Public Awareness Campaign ModelsThe last phase is implementing our Public Awareness Campaign Models and disseminating our Trainings. Now we are on the last phase.
  • Training programs was prepared in a wide range starting from inividual and family to institutions and organizations, including local desicion makers, technical staff and vulnerable groups. We have 15 training modules. Each training module consist of books, brochures, information cards, posters and trainer materials
  • We also prepared child friendly materials as;Danger Hunt Comic Book and DVDDanger Hunt Board GamePC GameThe Rocking Chair Theatre Play
  • Safe Life Communication and Training Campaign strategy is implemented in fivestageswhich we can summarize as creating awareness, encouraging to change attitude, gain skill and knowledge and creatingbehavioural change towards to take precautions and responsibility :At thefirststagewecreated awareness, usingbillboards, infobroshures, postersanddirectcommunication.

  • The campaign put into practice in a social campaign model based on training communication. Indoor and outdoor activities and social media being used in this campaign. Alongside one to one communication with the institutions through focused communication activities provide high participation to the trainings.Filmi beklemek gerekiyor.
  • The main objective of the Safe Life Volunteer campaign is to disseminate mitigation culture at the individual, family and institutions level by establishing a social alliance and thus to ensure that residents of İstanbul are prepared for and resistant against disasters.Communication campaign which prepared in accordance with this purpose is applied in the memorial days such as August 17th, November 12th and high participation is provided.With this campaign our aim is:To raise consciousness and awareness level of Istanbul people on disaster preparednessTo Increase community based measures on disaster vulnerability reductionTo build informed and skilled community potential, capable to take basic measures in the inhabited area, during the first 72 hours in theaftermath of an eventual disaster, until the arrival of the professional teamsTo establish the local disaster volunteering system of Istanbul.
  • You can follow the contents For Adult Trainings on the slide.SafeLife 1 is based on raising public awareness starting from the individualSafelife 2 is based on enhancing the awareness of individual with further knowledge and upskill. Andincreasing the awareness level from individual to family.Local Disaster Volunteers training aims to develop a social collaboration on the community level. At public version people learn to be a part of a team and starts to assess the risks of theirneighbourhoods with classroom excercises and town watching. Bythisway, thecommunity can start to prepare projects on disaster preparedness, risk mitigation and other needs they projected. Trainings alsocontains response and recovery topics that community may need after disasters.
  • YagariaSimulationExerciseWe imaginated a district called Yagaria which has paromasis with the other name of Kocaeli, Sakarya.And we told the participants that they were one of role models of Yagaria and they have the opportunity to prepare their district to disasters.Every one shared the roles on the slide and tried to act as their role model at the contest day. The aim of the exercise was to understand the roles of institutions, municipalities, directorates in the community and tell their responsibilities to the other members of their teams.
  • In this section, I will talk about non formal community disaster training programmes put into practise in line with ISMEP dissemination strategies which I mentioned before.
  • The trainings needed to be varied for different target groups. For Safe Life 1 training Children versions are divided into two groups which are at age 6 to 9 and at age 10 to 16. which are also equal to primary school upto 4th grade and upper grades.Safelife life 1 training has an Adult Version which has been shared with the Teachers, Parents and people in the community.Safelife 2 is for all kinds of target groups except children.When we look to Local Disaster Volunteers program we evaluated 2 versions, one for institutions and the other for public. Also disaster and Emergency Planning topic is included for the institutional training programs.Totally we have 7 version of training program.
  • One of them is “Individuals and Families Disaster PreparednessProject” which is applied together with the Provincial Directorate of National Education.94 volunteer teacher participated training programmes and reached 37.195 person in their place of duty
  • Bireylerin olası afet etkilerine karşı bilinçlenebilmeleri kapsamında afet ile ilgili zarar azaltma ve örgütsel hazırlık çalışmaları yapan kuruluşların, bireylere, afet etkilerine karşı koruyucu önlem alınması konularında “sürdürülebilir iletişim” anlayışı ile hizmet sunması gerekmektedir. Afet etkilerine karşı korunma önlemlerinin bireyler tarafından sürekli olarak alınmasına ve dolayısıyla toplumu bilinçlendirme çalışmalarının sürekli ve etkin olmasına gereksinim duyulmaktadır. Toplumsal bilinçlenmede, afet öncesinde afetin zararlı etkilerinden korunabilmek için neler yapılması gerektiği konusunda toplumda tutum ve davranış biçimleri geliştirilmesi, afet tehlikesine karşı hazırlıklı olma konusunda sürekli olarak bilgi edinilmesini ve eğitim alınmasını gerektirmektedir.Bizler de literatürde yapılmış olan çalışmaların dikkat çektiği bu noktalardan hareketle hedef kitlelerimiz ile sürdürülebilir ilişkiye dayalı bir iletişim modeli uygulamaktayız. Örneğin, güçlendirme sürecinde sosyal rehberlik çalışması ile iletişime geçerek süreç hakkında bilgi paylaşımında bulunduğumuz okullarımızda güçlendirme çalışmaları tamamlandıktan sonra yetişkin hedef kitlemizi güvenli yaşam eğitimi ile çocuklarımızı ise Sallanan Sandalye tiyatro oyunu ile afetlere karşı bilgilendiriyoruz. Aynı zamanda güvenli yaşam eğitimlerimizde dolduttuğumuz değerlendirme formları ile almış olduğumuz bilgiler doğrultusunda oluşturduğumuz veri tabanımız ile gönüllü bireylerimizle iletişim halindeyiz. Böylelikle hedef kitlelerimizle kurduğumuz ve ilgili konularda bilgi ve görüş alışverişini bulunarak temasa geçtiğimiz bireyler ile etkin ve sürekli iletişim sağlamaktayız.
  • We implemented a dissemination model with university students. In this project, our stakeholder was Yıldız Technical University International Affair Student Club members.The Aim of the Project wasthe integration of the University student’s with public under volunteerism and / Safe Life 1 Trainings in YTU and in neigbourhoods for informingand raising awareness of public andtheuniversityyouthabout disaster preparednessFor this purpose we did a TOT program with the university students who applied to take part in the project from all faculties. 21 Students passed our TOT program and touched 1091 (one thousand ninetyone) people to sha re their knowledge on disaster awareness.As the project is an ongoing one the numbers will increase in the next days.These 21 students shared 72 Neighbourhoods in Istanbul. A Meeting has been organized and Mukhtars from all 72 neighbourhoods have been invited to the meeting.
