It’s time to master crisis management #EENA2021
How to better protect both the public and crisis responders during a disaster
One of the featured topics in public safety to be explored at the EENA Conference 2021 (6-8 October, Riga).
Whether it concerns man-made threats (terrorist attacks, industrial accidents) or natural hazards (earthquakes, wildfires or flash floods), no human being can fully escape from both the physical and psychological impact caused by a crisis situation.
It’s no secret that the current global sanitary crisis, the recent flash floods and heatwaves have affected us all in one way or another, and – more importantly – those who are on the frontline. This is why developing a crisis management plan is crucial to limit the damages and help teams to address the crisis quickly. A successful crisis management plan requires the consideration of many different aspects, the involvement of a variety of actors, as well as effective preparation in advance.
From the benefits of having a non-emergency number in place and an effective communication strategy to inform the public, to insightful programmes designed to promote well-being for emergency responders, the #EENA2021 sessions below will keep you up to date with the best practices and lessons learnt on adapting emergency response in ever-changing crisis situations.
