In March 2009, Lions Clubs International signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). This partnership encourages Lions to participate in IFRC disaster preparedness training and planning.
There are numerous opportunities to receive disaster preparedness training: working on a Community Advisory Council, arranging blood drives, pinpointing vulnerable populations that would require extra help in case of disaster, helping with community-wide emergency drills and educating the public about pandemic flu viruses.
