Disasters are at our doorstep and are affecting more people than ever before. From natural disasters to terrorist attacks, these events are increasing in both scale and frequency. How prepared are we and what have you done to improve your own resilience?
Dr Derrick Tin is a medical doctor with a background in disaster management and mass casualty events. He was previously involved in multi-agency maritime rescues and disaster field hospital setups and is the 2019 Commonwealth full-ride scholarship recipient awarded by the Australian Institute of Disaster Resilience for his ongoing studies in Disaster Management and Response. His talk will discuss how earthquakes are saving lives and the importance of community disaster resilience.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.feelathomeincapetown.co.za/
