About this Unit
This unit explores the management of planning and preparation for and community responses to disasters and emergencies. Through case studies and presentations from current and cutting-edge professional practitioners in the field, students develop a ‘hands on’ understanding of risk assessment and prevention strategies for community safety during times of critical incidents. This includes emergency management strategies for community recovery and public education and preparation for potentially critical incidents. Workshop activities facilitate collaborative student learning through the use of developing scenarios including infectious disease pandemics, natural disasters and manmade emergencies such as terrorism.
