I’ve been thinking about this for a while:
(From Gustav Missing thread)
Is it plausible to setup a volunteer (read club/activity for the sake of legality)
organisation of foreigners in Taiwan who would be interested in setting up a team in case something bad should happen - I’m talking typhoons, earthquakes and people being lost?
There are many people who post on this board who have a realm of different knowlege and experience and possibly related formal training. As an organisation, information could be shared in meetings/activities and learning workshops could be organised thus ensuring a team or group which has a safe capability for searching/rescue should the need arise.
Back in the UK, there are many small teams of people who are willing to put aside time to help the emergency services and I’m sure this is true in other countries too. In Taiwan, where the emergency services can’t really be trusted to do their jobs properly, it only seems logical to have an organisation with members who are willing and able to help if the situation arises.
Just a suggestion. How many people would be interested?
