Water, Sanitation and Hygiene – Family Solutions to Survive a Quake-Tsunami

Stew Martin

Will our communities become Third World villages after a quake-tsunami? We’ve brought you a WaSH expert to plan for that! This interactive course will assume a large quake and tsunami have devastated your community infrastructure; will discuss the environment the disaster presents, and how families can respond at point-of-use locations. Using low-cost techniques, like urine-separating toilets and hand-washing, small filters, disinfection and storage – families can remain healthy in an environment filled with coliform bacteria, and lower risks of cholera and diarrhea. You will not only learn about a range of “solutions” – you will understand the risks, behaviors needed, and how to keep families safe. Then you can spread this information throughout your community, to prepare now.
