 How to be a PERC
The ODPEM seeks to identify students from the tenth, eleventh and twelve grades within the secondary education system to form a National Emergency Preparedness and Response Corps to support its system during the preparedness and post impact phases. The ODPEM is also desirous of having these young people support their individual School Safety Program and ultimately advance Disaster Risk Reduction principles.
 

PERC Training Component

This will include the identification of students within the grades stipulated for training in the following areas:

  • Basic Disaster Management
  • Fist Aid
  • Principles of Shelter Management
  • Incident Command System
  • Light Level Search and Rescue
  • Initial Damage Assessment
  • Emergency Telecommunications
  
Role of the PERC
You will be registered and assigned duties within your own communities where they are familiar with the conditions which prevail. You will be called upon to assist in the following areas:
  • The delivery of first aid when necessary
  • Relief distribution
  • Emergency shelter preparation
  • Support damage assessment and victim registration
  • Assist the elderly and disable during adverse conditions
 

You will be linked first to the operations of the Parish Disaster Management Committees and by extension the operations at the National Level. For further information contact the ODPEM.
