Building Resilience to Emergencies: Sutherland Shire
Thu. 24 November 2016, 9:30 am – 4:00 pm AEDT
Community service providers are invited to attend a FREE workshop on planning for emergencies.
Many of your clients are particularly vulnerable during disasters. This workshop will provide you with information and tips on how to incorporate preparedness messages into your everyday service delivery and to better prepare your organisation for emergencies. This is a unique opportunity to draw upon the expertise of emergency services and further develop your emergency management plan with agencies such as the Rural Fire Service, SES, Fire and Rescue, Police.
Community service providers in the aged-care, disability, CALD and school sectors are encouraged to attend.
The workshop will address questions such as:
What is the role of emergency services during an event?
How can we prepare for events which happen very quickly?
How are we responsible to staff and clients during an event?
How can we work with clients to increase their preparedness through our service delivery?
Are there issues specific to our service type or location we should consider?
