1. Contemporary Response

Welcome to Module 3: Risk Response Management, Collaboration, & Coordination

Good work making it through the first two modules! As a recap, module 1 introduced you to some basic emergency management concepts, risks, and risk analysis. Module 2 focused on community and organisational resilience, risk readiness, and risk reduction. Throughout those modules, we looked at some real world examples of emergencies, how they were managed, and the lessons learned from them. 

In this module, we are going to build upon those concepts and discuss response management, collaboration, and coordination with the aim of supporting the communities and organisations within them during times of trauma and disaster. 

Watch the video below (6:37 mins) which introduces you to some contemporary response measures.
