“There's no harm in hoping for the best as long as you're prepared for the worst.”Stephen KingDifferent Seasons

Disaster preparedness – what do you need to know? Are you ready? Disasters concern all of us, in terms of people impacted and economic losses accounted. The number, scale and costs of disasters are increasing, mainly as a consequence of growing population, environmental degradation, unplanned settlements, expanding and aging infrastructure, growing assets at risk and more complex societies. The Syrian refugees’ crisis, recent earthquakes like in Nepal and terrorist attacks have shown the need for establishing feasible mechanisms, such as response protocols or facilities.

When disaster strikes, your organization looks to you for a response. At this seminar you will learn about crisis management competencies that you need to have to carry out your responsibilities calmly, professionally and effectively when a crisis hits.
