Emergency Management Training

Courses/workshops offered by SES | Courses/workshops offered by AIDR

The Tasmanian Emergency Management Plan (TEMP) recognises the four areas of emergency management activity, namely prevention, preparedness, response and recovery (PPRR). For each hazard type, the TEMP assigns responsibility to an agency as management authority for all or part of the PPRR spectrum. The TEMP also reflects the Emergency Management Act 2006 provisions for State, Regional and Municipal Emergency Management Committees. Inherent in fulfillment of those various roles and responsibilities is the need to develop relevant capability, one of the key inputs to which is training.

Currently emergency management professional development training is provided by the State Emergency Service and the Australain Institute for Disaster Resilience.
