By constructing Disaster Preparedness Centers, the Society aims to provide rescue victims with daily necessities in a timely fashion following a disaster, demonstrating the Red Cross humanitarian spirit. The Society also established the Disaster Preparedness Center Management Guidelines and set aside a NT$800,000 disaster relief reserve fund for each branch. With regards to disasters caused by typhoons and earthquakes, we established the Minor Disaster Relief Guidelines with the intent to provide the most immediate relief to disaster victims. At present, we are Taiwan's sole rescue preparedness resource logistics network. From here the Society will strive to strengthen collaboration with the government and other NGOs in terms of communication, coordination and cooperation.
