The Intersec IAEM Emergency Management Standard Workshop

Sunday - January 20, 2019
Diamond Meeting Room, Novotel World Trade Centre Hotel, Dubai, UAE

The Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP)

This certified hands-on practical workshop in co-operation with the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) will provide participants with the opportunity to learn about international best practices in the emergency/disaster/security management profession, reflected in the Emergency Management Standard, including Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA), hazard mitigation, prevention, emergency operations, recovery, and continuity plans, resource management, communications, and emergency public information. Participants will learn how to apply the best practices of the emergency management profession, reflected in the Emergency Management Standard, to their organisation.

The workshop will also provide participants with an overview of the EMAP Accreditation Process. This workshop will serve as a starting point for organisations interested in pursuing the EMAP Accreditation. EMAP is the only organisation that accredits Emergency Management Programs and it is the first time that the Emergency Management Standards Workshop is being hosted in the Middle East.

  • The process of preparing for assessment and achieving Accreditation for an Emergency Management Program by EMAP
