These tools have been designed to help you to review, improve or develop your organisation’s crisis preparedness program. They can also be used as stand-alone activities to engage your teams as part of preparation or refresher training activities.
As each organisation’s crisis readiness journey is unique, we are keen to hear about your experience and the suitability of these tools for your operation. Please reach out via email and let us know your thoughts as to whether they have been of value to you and whether we can provide any assistance with implementation or improvement activities.
