    As the scale of Wendesday’s earthquake in West Sumatra unfolds, a small team from FEBC, already in Indonesia for a FIRST Response trial and workshop, is heading to Padang to set up an emergency radio response.  FIRST Response is a project designed to set up an emergency radio station within 72 hours of a disaster.  Studies show that following a disaster, where communications infrastructure is often destroyed, radio can save lives, providing essential information and life-saving messages.
