Research project covered: Effective incident management organising

What's it about?

This study has improved the understanding of how multi-agency emergency management coordination at regional and state levels (and at a national level in New Zealand) could be improved in order to reduce the consequences to communities of an emergency. The project investigated information flow, communication, capacity to adjust to emerging scenarios, breakdown in coordination, training and education and how changes to these elements will support more effective incident management. These findings will enable agencies to continue to refine their performance at these levels.
