In addition to our regular Syria Civil Defence operations, we provide vital community services, especially in areas with no local council. Tasks include fixing electricity cables, fixing water supply pipelines and maintenance of public infrastructure like roads.
Involving the local community
Because of the popularity and support Syria Civil Defence enjoys in local communities, we try to mobilise these communities through awareness campaigns. Our awareness operations have improved over time and now we have specialised awareness and risk education teams. We focus on students, mothers and older people. We teach them what they should do before, during and after strikes. We also collaborate with local councils to identify local infrastructure needs.
