Organisational Impact

Emergencies and Crises can happen at any time and can vary in size and complexity. Emergency situations sometimes occur suddenly, requiring a swift multi-agency response; rapid incident response may take a short time, but the recovery can last for many days .  It is critical therefore that the organisation clearly demonstrates:

  • Efficient crisis leadership
  • Command and Control
  • Effective deployment of Emergency Response and Crisis Management Teams
  • How to provide a caring and humanitarian outlook
  • How to launch swift recovery operations
  • Techniques to mitigate the full range of risks and hazards
  • Organisational methodologies to placate issues before they develop into crises

Personal Impact

Simply following a template or Emergency Plan is not always sufficient unless it is fully understood and coordinated with those many persons and agencies tasked within the plan on-site and local or community responding agencies off-site.  Emergency Teams must realise that not all emergency conditions can be anticipated and therefore an emergency situation may arise that is not specifically covered in the Plan:

  • Rapid decision making, knowing when and how to delegate and involve others
  • Exercising leadership and personnel management in crisis situations
  • Situation size-up, assessment and reporting
  • Assessing, prioritising and managing risks before, during and after
  • Manage group dynamics and thinking
  • Team development and motivation
