Have you ever considered how you would respond to an emergency on your patch?
This one-day workshop will look at things from your personal angle. Your organisation, the fire brigade, police, etc, will have emergency plans in place, but we’ll focus on you.
We’ll look at a wide range of case studies, think about preparedness, consider anticipating what you might have to deal with in the future and discuss how you, as an individual, can contribute to sorting out the unexpected while supporting others.
