MEDIA VOLUNTEERS for DISASTER MANAGEMENT & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
During Disaster situation, communication is a very important component that needs to be taken care of to keep the situation under control. When natural disasters like cyclone, flood hit a region, the first affected will be the power supply. When power goes off, TV, Mobile Phones won't work for a long time to receive information. Whereas ordinary FM Radio stations can broadcast with batteries and people can listen through radio sets which can operate in batteries. There are also crank radios available which can generate power by a manual crank attached to the radio receiver. In order to produce programs in advance and to work during Disaster, we are looking for volunteers with media background to support us.
