The need for the webinar was identified following the 2019/20 bushfire response, where there was wide variation in the emergency preparedness of residential aged care services across affected districts in NSW. We will be providing general information for NSW residential aged care services about emergency management arrangements.
Issues covered will include:
- emergency management concepts
- information on hazards
- information on the roles and responsibilities of different agencies during emergencies.
This webinar is a joint collaboration between the Australian Government Department of Health and the NSW Ministry of Health, with support from partner agencies.
When: 2.00pm (AEDT) Thursday 18 March 2021
