International Disaster Congress concludes in Cuba

Havana, Dec 8 (Prensa Latina) The 11th International Congress on Disasters and the 7th International Conference of Firefighters will conclude this Friday with an analysis and debate on cooperation among nations in fire safety.

Participants gathered at the Havana-based Conference Center will also reflect on the fight against disasters and social communication in the Fire Department.

On Thursday, the delegates addressed strategies for extinguishing fires, managing forest fires, and training and preparing firefighters, rescuers, and dogs. The latter are inseparable allies for rescuers.

Cuba’s Institute of Geophysics and Astronomy (IGA) informed that, among its research, it maintains areas of danger and vulnerabilities in the coastal zones of this country.

They are associated with the average sea level rise for 2050 and 2100 due to the effects of climate change.

The risk assessment also includes psychosocial intervention in natural disaster situations in the communities.
