Who are Australia’s Emergency Managers?

The 2018 Australian and New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference is almost here again, this year the Conference will be held over the 21-22 May at The Star Gold Coast.

Mr Dudley Mcardle, Senior Emergency Management Advisor at Monash University joins us to discuss Who are Australia’s Emergency Managers?’

Background: Monumental change confronts the emergency management sector. Consequently, Emergency Managers must adjust to the ever-broadening range of skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to perform their responsibilities as well as how they acquire those skills. Yet little is known or documented about Australia’s emergency managers – who they are; what their skills and qualifications are and what experience they bring to their positions.
