  • The main idea is to be prepared for any disaster which may befall you or your family so that you can re-act quickly and sensibly, and so possibly save lives and/or property.

Peace Officer
  • To function well, we need each and every President to appoint a “Peace Officer”, and to convey that Rotarian’s details to us as soon as possible
  • The Officer’s main function is liaison.
  • District meetings of the Peace Officers are not onerous - only a few times per year
  • Just remember - Peace projects could save your life!.
