What it means to be Interested

Be non-prestigious and treat community groups and citizens as potentially crucial resources. Let them know that you wish to be up to date on the quantity and nature of the community groups in your jurisdiction. Demonstrate your interest by inviting and visiting them to describe and explain the specific needs and vulnerabilities that have been identified within your local community. Be open and transparent about what these specific needs and vulnerabilities are in your jurisdiction or geographical area. Don´t be prestigious but instead ask citizens for help where help is needed.

  • Invite and visit community groups in order to inform them about local risks and vulnerabilities.
  • Volunteers can be found in already existing groups based on various hobbies and interests.
  • Relate to what motivates people when offering them tasks in crisis management.
  • Use ICT and social media in an interactive way by responding to people’s inquiries and ideas.
  • Be attentive so that key individuals and resources are not neglected.
  • Think of diverse community groups and citizens as important information sources in a crisis.
