RedR seeks participants for disaster relief challenge

International disaster relief charity RedR will be holding a Disaster Relief Challenge on 26 April where members of UK engineering firms will be able to put their physical, mental and technical skills to the test during a simulated disaster situation.
RedR members with actual field experience will be running the event, and believe it will be a very useful experience for participants as well an unique team-building.

Arup, Tony Gee & Partners and Mott MacDonald are just some of the many engineering firms already signed up for the event. Arup's Mark Tindale, who has previously participated in the challenge, commented: "The challenge simulates the sort of work that often needs to be done in the field and raises many of the issues that relief workers face".

To enter a four-man team for the challenge, companies must pay £500, which will go towards further training and skills development for RedR employees deployed in disaster zones.

For more information visit www.redr.org.uk/en/Newsroom/News/index.cfm/. Companies are advise to get their applications in early to avoid disappointment.
