Effective Emergency Planning and Disaster Recovery
Wednesday October 2nd 2024, Ditchley Park, Oxfordshire

This course is aimed at those who have had emergency plans in place for several years but are keen on conducting a review to ensure that the content will work effectively if ever implemented . With a combination of presentations and exercises, participants will be encouraged to scrutinise their plan, emergency management structure and identify strategies for improvement where necessary.

For anyone wishing to write an emergency plan it will also function well as an introduction to the topic and cover the fundamental content required for a robust and resilient contingency document. The day will also provide information regarding salvage techniques for dealing with damaged objects and provide blueprints for training within attendees' organisations.

On October 2nd 2024, we will be returning to the beautiful surroundings of Ditchley Park in Oxfordshire (OX7 4ER). Ditchley Park - one of the United Kingdom’s finest houses, having a rich history as an idyllic retreat for royalty and power since the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.
