Self-reliance advice for the public

The internet is an information source which virtually everybody uses. This makes it the ideal channel for disseminating information about first aid and accident prevention to the general public. In this connection, the Centre for Evidence-Based Practice  of Belgian Red Cross-Flanders examined whether or not online risk communication is useful.

In 2012, we posted new, up-to-date action sheets and self-reliance advice on our website. Visitors can learn what to do in the event of a heatwave, flooding or poisoning, for example.
