C4i and CDEMA partner on disaster management

Dec 9, 2015

C4i Consultants have signed a memorandum of understanding with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) to support the "One Million Lives" project.

In collaboration with C4i, CDEMA is embarking on a multi-phase project to create a world-class emergency disaster management training facility with remotely deployable classrooms. C4i’s Emergency and Disaster Management Simulation (EDMSIM) software will be used to equip trainees with realistic tabletop exercises.

The facility and training resources intend to have a positive impact in the area of comprehensive disaster management (CDM), with specific measurables in capacity building, multi-agency collaboration and integration, and training the CDM leaders of the future.

At the conclusion of the one-year project, there will be ongoing activities and support to ensure the benefits create lasting and sustainable programming for CDEMA, its member states, key stakeholders and partners. The goal of the project is for one million lives to be saved as a result of proactive emergency training.
