Event description

Description

The Coventry University Resilience and Emergencies Series brings together leaders from the resilience community in both public and private sectors, to explore some of the biggest challenges faced by the UK.

This series of four free, unique offers an opportunity to explore:

Emergency planning and response for public spaces,

The future of resilient cities,

Issues for crowded places

The challenges facing the emergency services in the 21st century.

Supported by academics and practitioners each session immerses participants in a relevant scenario that makes full use of the world-class simulation facilities at Coventry University.

Operation: Mass Gathering

The third in the series will use simulation and tabletop exercises to explore new threats for crowded places, immersing participants in a large-scale simulated environment and exploring the complexities of command and control at public events.

Key to this day will be an examination of the integration of event management staff and private security provision with the emergency services. In particular we will explore the means by which event staff might gain early control of a situation, as well as considering how such staff will be expected to work alongside their agency partners.

An interactive and dynamic, multi-agency crisis-response scenario will provide opportunities to explore the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders throughout an incident, as well as examining the tactical and strategic ramifications for incident management. It will challenge decision making and introduce some of the key topics for crisis management, continuity and emergency response.

09.30 registration for a 10:00 start. Event ends at 16:00 and lunch and refreshments and lunch will be provided.
