Emergency Management.  Communities and agencies responsible for emergency management need to have their people trained to the extent that the crisis can be managed effectively. Those affected by the crisis will be reliant on this group of knowledgeable professionals for leadership and direction during these highly stressful events. Through this programme EMTC provides this all-important training to emergency management professionals, both as paid and volunteer staff, who work in Emergency Operation Centres and Emergency Coordination Centres during an emergency. It is also aimed at Emergency Managers and others involved in the day-to-day management of Civil Defence Emergency Management.
