The Iranian Red Crescent Society has joined the International Society for Rapid Response Systems (iSRRS), said the under-secretary general for health, treatment and rehabilitation of the IRCS. “The decision was made after representatives from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies reviewed and confirmed IRCS emergency response operations at this year’s annual meeting of Emergency Response Units (ERU) Review and Coordination,” said Dr. Afshin Alikhani on the sidelines of the meeting in Helsinki, the Finnish capital. Iran will now be invited as an official member to participate in global emergency response operations, as well as international conferences held by the iSRRS, he added, the Persian-language daily ‘Shahrvand’ reported. The iSRRS is an international organization supporting rapid response systems across the globe via education, standards setting and the promotion of high quality research and audit.
