Emergency Readiness and High Angle Rescue 2-Day ModuleHave you ever wondered which of your crew members could help get a climber down from up in the tree if something were to happen? Emergency Readiness & High Angle Rescue is designed to educate tree climbers in the most likely scenarios where they may have to respond to an emergency. The recent international situation reveals that armed conflicts caused by ethnic and religious strife around the world are producing a large number of refugees and internally displaced persons. The Japanese Red Cross Society is engaged in a wide range of international activities in cooperation with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). Whenever a large-scale disaster or conflict occurs, it is imperative to rapidly provide emergency relief to the affectedin the form of medical care, shelter and relief items, such as food and clothing. Leveraging the capabilities of its 92 medical facilities nationwide, the JRCS is prepared to dispatch highly professional medical and healthcare staff at a momenta€™s notice from the IFRC and ICRC. In order to be prepared for these situations, the JRCS unremittingly trains its personnel and maintains the necessary relief supplies even in times of relative peace.
From emergency relief to recovery assistance, the JRCS has adapted a seamless, all-encompassing set of processes to aid in the recovery of disaster-stricken areas, whether the cause is human or natural. The JRCS aids in the restoration and reconstruction of damaged houses and medical facilities. In many developing countries, local communities are inadequately equipped to handle natural disasters.

Many people around the world lose their lives simply because they lack access to standard social services (namely medical services, healthcare and sanitation). Restoring family links refers to the maintenance and restoration of bonds between members of the same family who have become separated due to conflict, disaster, or the severing of diplomatic relations. Donations raised through the NHK International Helping Hand Campaign are the primary source of funding for international activities conducted by the JRCS. During the campaign, the JRCS takes in donations with the help of volunteers at Red Cross facilities all over Japan. The JRCS, as a member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (Movement), considers it its primary responsibility to provide support for relief activities organized by its sister societies in affected areas, it stands ready to fund any emergency appeals launched by the ICRC or IFRC. The JRCS conducts relief activities overseas under the direction of the ICRC if an emergency arises in countries and regions in conflict situations; this is called the Rapid Deployment mechanism. For example, it maintains a stock of disaster relief equipment in a warehouse in Malaysia, to effectively respond to crises in the natural disaster-prone Asia Pacific region; the stock contains enough supplies a€“ in the form of 10 different relief items like blankets, family-sized tents, etc. The JRCS aims to alleviate suffering by providing medical support; it helps people in affected areas deal with illness in addition to other misfortunes to which they are typically vulnerable. It also helps local National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies stockpile relief supplies, train volunteers, and organizes workshops to promote disaster preparedness in local communities.
The JRCS is implementing various projects, mostly with the assistance of local volunteers, to prevent diseases by administering a sustainable supply of clean water and basic sanitation facilities (e.g. The Japanese Red Cross Society takes supportive measures to restore these family links through a series of enquiries and investigations, while also taking into account the emotions of the person(s) in question. The combined efforts of these two entities allows for a cooperative system designed to investigate the safety of missing persons and restoring family links. The Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) has broadcasted this campaign nationwide every December since 1983.
Donations are also collected at NHK broadcasting offices across the country, and financial institutions such as banks, post offices and agricultural cooperatives allow donations to be made via bank deposit transfer. The importance of self-rescue strategies and understanding the ‘working alone’ definition reinforces the importance of emergency readiness. Against such a backdrop, expectations are ever increasing that the Red Cross, with its global network, will fulfill its many roles.

In fiscal 2012, the JRCS funded 37 emergency appeals contributing a total of i??297 million. It also collaborates with the IFRC to dispatch Basic Healthcare Emergency Response Units (ERUs) a€“ mainly in the case of natural disasters. Furthermore, the JRCS works to help those affected by a disaster to rebuild their lives, and strives to improve the managerial capacity of National Red Cross Societies in countries affected by a disaster.
In doing so, the JRCS aims to encourage the development of efficient disaster responses in communities overseas.
The JRCS demonstrates its commitment to the Movement through its sustained support for community-based disaster preparedness and risk reduction. Participants are educated in the truths about tree work accidents and fatalities; information based on arborist statistics and industry reviews provides the basis for the specific rescue techniques trained and practiced. The JRCS also supports local forces to procure relief materials, and assists in training local relief personnel involved in water supply and sanitation.
Its international efforts are particularly concentrated on the Asia-Pacific region, one of the most disaster-affected areas in the world. Africa is the main focus of these efforts, where the JRCS is emphasizing three areas in particular: reducing infant mortality rates, improving maternal and child health, and controlling the spread of infectious diseases. Bearing in mind the various support needs in the event of a large-scale natural disaster, the JRCS is currently also in negotiation with other entities devoted to this issue. Participants are educated in key terms and definitions relating to rope parts, knots, hitches and specialized equipment. The JRCS is actively involved in various disaster preparedness projects throughout Asia and has adopted a grassroots approach to training local communities in disaster management and mangrove afforestation. Participants are given the opportunity to perform rescues during the course, so are encouraged to be proficient climbers before participating at this level. It is recommended that you take Tree Climbing, Fall Protection and Work Positioning prior to attending this course.
