Emergency Management: Hazard Identification, Mitigation/Response and Recovery Planning

About the program

This half-day, 4-hour seminar presents the theories, principles and approaches to hazard identification mitigation, which is any action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people, the environment and property from natural or man-made hazards. The first step when developing an emergency response plan is to conduct a risk assessment to identify potential emergency scenarios. An understanding of what can happen will enable you to determine resource requirements and to develop plans and procedures to prepare your organization. A short activity will be conducted by the participants to reinforce the concepts covered in this session.
