Part 1: PUAWER005B Operate as part of an emergency control organisation & Part 2: PUAWER006B Lead an emergency control organisation
During emergencies, large and small, one of the most important factors is coordination of both human and physical resources. All with the objective of bring the emergency to a successful conclusion. To do this we need to provide general management all activities – often called command and control. The emergency services use command and control and it could be said that generally businesses do to. Imagine if there was no boss in a business – it might sound like a good idea! But more likely, it would mean that nothing would be managed and the lack of coordination would reduce productivity, safety and business success.
In this combination course you will learn not only how to operate as an emergency warden but also as a leader who’s responsibility it is to coordinate an effective emergency response. Within the emergency warden course we emphasis the need to communicate very regularly with the chief warden so he or she can coordinate the response until the emergency services arrive.
