Ross introduces the Emergency Response Planning video following the devastation caused by the category 5 cyclone that hit Vanuatu on 13 March 2015. Humanitarian relief and rehabilitation continue in Vanuatu.
In such calamitous periods for countries around the world, emergency response planning, which is integral to infrastructure asset management planning, is very important.
Watch the introductory video above to gain an understanding of this topic, and the information that Ross discusses.
Ross refers to the International Infrastructure Management Manual, which has a comprehensive chapter on emergency response planning developed following the destructive Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake in 2011.
The topics in the Emergency Response Planning section that were included in the manual are:
- Business Continuity Plans
- Natural Hazards, Disasters
- Biological and Technical Hazards
Ross unpacks these topics and subtopics in the detailed Emergency Response Video you may view through the Free Subscription portion of Inframanage.
