Emergency Management Cycle HSP235

Hobart

Introduction

This unit examines the application of general management principles to the particular context of emergency management where normal challenges are further complicated by system failures, inadequate information, complex multi-agency and whole of community approaches and a challenging political and social environment.



The unit will examine the management principles through the cycle of emergency management involving the prevention and mitigation phase, preparedness phase, response phase, and recovery phase. It will also explore specific management issues that are central to effective emergency management practice including the impact of socio-technical systems design and human factors.



This unit is an intermediate (level 2) emergency management unit focused on emergency management in disasters. This unit will present a range of examples upon which to reflect, in order to critically analyse the cycle of emergency management.
