Disaster & Emergency Management Summit
Large scale catastrophic disasters, both natural and man-made as well unforeseen emergencies will result in enormous number of fatalities, displace over millions of people, and incur billions of economic damage to countries and organisations and even greater indirect losses that can’t be measured using systematic assessment.
Increased scrutiny around how emergencies and disasters are being managed, in order to minimise its impact have urged disaster/emergency management authorities and agencies to enhance the nation’s disaster resilience effort.
Equip Global’s leading Disaster & Emergency Management Summit, taking place on 22 – 25 August 2017 in Singapore provides an exclusive opportunity for all disaster management authorities and emergency front line responders to share insights and hear best practice case studies on ways to enhance your country and communities responses for a disaster.
Expect to hear solutions/proven strategies to pertinent challenges emergency management authorities face when engaging communities for urban resilience planning and the best practices to coordinate between agencies before and during a disaster incident. In addition to strengthening community resilience, don’t miss the case studies on developing disaster management plans for disasters/emergencies including floods, drought, cyclones, earthquakes, wildfire, industrial fire, collapse of critical infrastructures and terrorism.
