Disasters can come in a variety of forms e.g. hurricanes, floods, fires, tornadoes etc and can strike at any time. Disaster preparedness, prevention and planning are all critical components of effective disaster responsiveness.

During this event, Emma Dadson will provide an overview of disaster management using her experience and case studies including considering components such as building management, health and safety etc which can often be overlooked in emergency plans.

Sally Faith will speak about the creation and review of a disaster recover manual including where to start and what to include in it.

Geoff Gardner will present on the work of the M25 Consortium Task and Finish Group which was set up to review and revise the M25 Consortium’s resources for supporting business continuity planning amongst members.

There will be a chance for attendees to ask questions and also to exchange experiences of disaster planning at your own institutions.
