  • Humanity - We strive to prevent and alleviate suffering, protect life and health, and ensure respect for the human being Impartiality - We do not discriminate Neutrality - We do not take sides Independence - We maintain our autonomy Voluntary Service - Not prompted by a desire for gain Unity - Only one Red Cross or Red Crescent Society in any one country Universality - The Movement is worldwide
  • We are not mandated by government to respond to emergencies. We are an auxiliary to government. Respond when called upon. We do not self deploy. PDA vs ERT We work within the community to build upon and enhance community resiliency We train and work within the IMS structure to ensure we “speak” a common language
  • IAR: i am responding
  • Integrated network of agencies working together to provide for the immediate needs of those affected by disaster, includes volunteer agencies, regional staff and cooperation/support from local townships
