Taking part in an operation to provide support
and assistance to the casualties of humanitarian
emergencies is a rewarding but challenging experience,
often very different from the life you live
at home. Your role as a field staff member, and
the roles of others at MSB, are crucial for the
successful outcome of an operation.
This handbook is intended for field staff who
are about to take part in an operation with MSB.
It contains hands-on advice and answers to
questions about your employment at MSB. As a
field staff member you have to take responsibility
for actively seeking information and answers to
questions that may come up during an operation.
The advice and guidelines provided in this handbook
are general; for more specific questions, you
need to consult with your programme officer.
