About the content

Explore the key steps in emergency planning. When preparing a community for an incident, creating plans for identified risks and implementing mitigation measures is key.

Responding to a fire is different to responding to a flood. Different actions and different resources are needed for each of these scenarios.

This course will introduce you to some of the key concepts of emergency planning. You will explore the relationship between the type of emergency and the type of response in order to understand how these dependencies shape the emergency plan.
