Prepare, Plan, Protect - Major Incidents and Emergency Planning

Thursday 21st September 2017


The world is unpredictable. Major incidents will by their very nature take place without warning; it is, therefore critical to have clear, concise and detailed plans of how to respond. This event will bring the key players together to discuss their roles and responsibilities, how to improve collaboration and ways to ensure a coherent response, able to save lives and protect citizens. With case studies from those who have seen their policies tested and those who have been on the coalface during disaster, the day aims to provide delegates with expert guidance designed to assist in the making of policies no-one ever wants to enact. “For the emergency planning and response community, this is a must-attend event. The conference offers delegates the opportunity to engage and network with the UK's experts in emergency management while understanding the threats their regions are most at risk from experiencing. If you want to become prepared and resilient to future threats to the UK, this is the event to be at.” (Katie Landon, Sector Marketing Manager, Arco Ltd.)


Goverment Knowledge Overview Overview

Prepare, Plan, Protect - Major Incidents and Emergency Planning Thursday 21st September 2017

Planning and preparation is essential for staying safe

Major Incident and Emergency Planning , Preparation, Risk Assessment and Response Conference was launched in 2015 and has proved to be one of our most popular events. In an era of globalised communications, the awareness of major incidents is on the rise. 2016 counted the terrorist attacks on the streets of Paris, the Brussels attacks, major industrial incidents, global pandemics and security threats to critical national infrastructure. While many of us are becoming more and more aware of the risks around, very few know how to act when a danger occurs. Our conference offers an opportunity to discuss evolving threats, to explore the latest thinking on responses and ways forward to strengthen collaboration between individuals and organisations.
