About this Unit
This unit consists of project based studies that explore how human societies prepare for and respond to disasters and emergencies. The unit uses case studies to investigate the historical practice of preparation, prevention, response and recovery strategies for community safety during times of critical incidents. The unit will facilitate improved understanding by developing scenarios of impending issues such as natural disasters and man made emergencies. Focus will be on Australian national and State coordination arrangements for disaster planning including the comprehensive approach to emergency management. Students will need to attend a 5 day workshop and undertake a group presentation and report as well as an exercise in Incident Control System principles at a workshop.
