Day 1: Response
The workshop introduces participants to disaster/incident response and examines decision making and how Incident Management Teams solve problems during emergency response operations. The workshop also looks at Incident Management System and the policies, rules and culture in emergency response.
Day 2: Community recovery
The effective management of disasters continues well past the event; the recovery phase can last years and extend beyond recovery to community adaptation. However, poor management of the recovery phase can lead to a secondary disaster, as the economic and social consequences of the disaster cause long term individual and societal damage. This workshop will explore how to plan for and manage community recovery after a disaster.
