Family and Sexual Violence and Emergency Events
In November 2020, the Family and Sexual Violence and Emergency Events training module went live 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 module is targeted towards anyone in the emergency management sector and anyone involved in developing emergency management/recovery policies, including:
- 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
Having this understanding of the link between family and sexual violence and emergency events 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.
The module can be accessed through the SES website.
