Building Resilience In Communities

First responders save lives

We know that the first people on the scene of an emergency are your neighbours.

So our goal is to equip as many citizen responders with the equipment and the ability to deliver meaningful help until emergency personnel can get there.

Building Resilience In Communities (BRIC) was backed by the Canada Caribbean Disaster Risk Management (CCDRM) Fund on disaster risk reduction and management; through it we have managed the reconstruction of the District Emergency Organisation and the upgrade of the Marcus Garvey Resource and Development Centre (MGRDC) to function as the Emergency Operations Centre.


Through the fund has supported we have also produced this booklet to help you keep your family and your community safe.
