Community early warning systems

Emergency alerts issued by national authorities don’t always reach everyone at risk. We’re supporting Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers to actively monitor and issue timely alerts about risks to their local communities. By doing so, they can ensure even hard-to-reach communities are informed and prepared before a disaster strikes.

We have produced guiding principles and a training toolkit for National Societies and non-governmental organizations to create new, or improve existing, community early warning systems in their countries. National Societies can also access additional resources on Fednet.
