Kayiranga Pascal

Disasters have been always a public health issue for humanity and it has been observed that one of means to fight them is to be prepared before they strike. This study assessed the knowledge, attitude and practice of disaster preparedness among Rwanda Red Cross employees. It is a cross sectional and descriptive study realized in 70 persons working for Rwanda Red Cross. Data have been obtained from respondents and entered the questionnaire produced into SPSS then analysed. The findings showed that 38.6 % of respondents have experience in Red Cross for more than 10 years, 58.6 % of respondents do not have any experience in disaster preparedness, 58.6 % of respondents do not have any training in disaster management, 54.3 % of respondents need to know about disaster plan and 57.1 % of respondents do not know how frequent drills are performed in Rwanda Red cross and 100 % of respondents have willingness to provide first aid if disaster strikes. In conclusion, based on the results there is lack of minimum training in disaster preparedness for Rwanda Red Cross employees and it is recommended to Rwanda Red Cross to implicate all employees in disaster preparedness knowledge and practice.
