Duration: 2 Weekends (4 days)
Across the country, communities depend upon their emergency service organisations to reduce risks and provide public safety. On a day-to-day basis, these services fulfill their duties admirably and consistently.
Yet, in the face of unusual threats or catastrophic levels of problems, these services quickly become overwhelmed or unavailable. Time after time, the history of emergency management is littered with situations where due to the scale or magnitude of an event, communities were left on their own to respond and recover for periods of days or weeks. In these circumstances, community leaders had to emerge and organise to bring the community’s resources in an attempt to fill the gaps.
What time has demonstrated is that when properly led and focused, and when the relationships are strong, communities have enormous capacity and human resources that can be brought to bear in a time of crisis. In many cases, the community’s response far exceeded the help that came after “the calvary arrived”.
A 2-weekend (4 day) program, based on the highly credentialed Point of the Spear programs, this interactive program which uses a mix of theory, case studies, classroom exercises and field exercises, is designed to help develop relationships and skills to lead others in situations.
