New training module now available on Tasmanian Emergency Management Training (TasEMT)

TasEMT is a resource to enable people with emergency management responsibilities to increase their capability and capacity to be proficient during the All Hazards phases of prevention, preparedness, response and recovery (PPRR).

The Family and Sexual Violence and Emergency Events training module is the ninth module to be launched on TasEMT. The module is targeted towards anyone in the emergency management sector and anyone involved in developing emergency management/recovery policies.

The stakeholder groups this module will reach includes:

  • Local government / Tasmanian State Service Interoperability Register
  • Volunteers / Support agencies / Not-for-profit organisations
  • Control centres / operation centres / recovery and evacuation centres / WebEOC users
  • Response Management Authority / Emergency Management Coordination / Recovery Coordinators

This resource is a great opportunity to spread awareness on the correlation between family and sexual violence and emergency events. Having this understanding can assist individuals working in these areas to:

  • appropriately respond to disclosures of family and sexual violence with the information provided in the module; and
  • understand the additional barriers victim-survivors of family and sexual violence are faced with when developing recovery policies.
