Disaster Response Kit ???

Water and sanitation disaster response kits
There are three different kits available, according to location, number of beneficiaries, types of intervention, water volume and services required. The kits conform to Sphere and WHO standards, which stipulate that each person should have access to 15 litres of safe water per  day and access to safe excreta disposal as well as hygiene items. The kits contain equipment only. For information on personnel requirements, please see individual kit descriptions. The kits can be deployed separately or together, based on need.

• Water and sanitation disaster response kit 2
household level (for up to 2,000 beneficiaries)

This kit provides water treatment at household level for up to 2,000 beneficiaries (400 families), with no central treatment or storage capacity. This kit provides very basic sanitation facilities for a small population and is designed for response to the needs of scattered populations at household level and when beneficiary numbers are limited.
Hygiene promotion, as well as training in the use of materials and tools in the kit, is an essential part of the operation and must be carried out alongside distribution activities. Availability of local water sources is required. Local water and sanitation technicians and Red Cross Red Crescent volunteers are needed to ensure that the beneficiaries are familiar with household level water treatment methods.

• Water and sanitation disaster response kit 5
(for up to 5,000 beneficiaries)

Designed for the treatment and distribution of water for small populations, this kit can treat up to 75,000 litres of water a day for a population of up to 5,000 people. This kit requires the availability of local surface or ground water sup-
ply. Limited sanitation capacity for a first response is supplied within the kit, as well as some capacity for water trucking. The kit allows for the transport of treated water to several distribution points (capacity of up to 15,000 litres of
water a day) with limited possibility of setting up different storage and distribution points (preconditions are the avail- ability of flatbed trucks, fuel, road access). Hygiene promotion, as well as training in the proper use of
the equipment supplied, is an essential part of the operation and must be carried out alongside distribution activities. Local water and sanitation technicians and Red Cross Red Crescent volunteers for training and distribution of items are needed.

• Water and sanitation disaster response kit 10
(for up to 10,000 beneficiaries)

This kit is designed for the treatment and distribution of water for medium size populations, providing up to 150,000 litres of water a day for a population of up to 10,000 people. This kit requires the availability of a local surface or ground water supply. Limited sanitation capacity for a first response is supplied within the kit as well as some trucking capacity. It can provide the transport of treated water to several distribution points (capacity of up to 30,000 litres of
water a day) with limited possibility to set up different storage and distribution points (preconditions are the availability of flatbed trucks, fuel, road access).
