Voices of those affected by critical incidents workshop, 7th November 2013

October 28, 2013 | admin

Final places left for a full day workshop for people working in emergency response that will give an insight into the impact of the response on those affected in the immediate, medium and long term.  Now in its fifth year, this an annual training event is open to all local authorities, category 1 and 2 responders, voluntary agencies and anyone else with an interest in how the response impacts people beyond the incident itself.

 The workshop will be held at the Peace Centre in Warrington and costs just £75 per person (concessionary rates are available), including lunch and refreshments.  It will feature testimonies from people who have been affected by various incidents that have occurred over the past 40 years, including major emergencies and incidents that have only affected a few individuals.  Speakers will include survivors from bombings and also former emergency services responders.  You will get the chance to discuss with the speakers what worked and didn’t work with the response they received and also have the opportunity to network with other emergency responders from around the country.  The workshop will also consider the impact on responders of dealing with a critical incident and discuss self care issues.
