Red Cross IT & T ERU

Since May last year I have been connected to the recently activated NZ Red Cross It & T (Information Tecnology & Telecommunications) ERU (Emergency Response Unit). The team that has been put toghether have all been through initial Red Cross basic training for International 'Delegates' and technical training to be able to work with the equiment supplied by the International Federation of Red Cross to assist local Red Cross societies in times of disasters.

Very soon after the last of the team completed the last of the required training two members were on their way to joing a European IT&T ERU to Haiti.
