“Supporting papers had significant relevance to my day-to-day business…”
Studying emergency management has improved my knowledge of our nation’s many hazards, everything from how tsunamis are created and travel, to the geology of earth movement through subsidence or earthquake. I’ve also learnt about leadership and organisational change.
I’ve been working in emergency management for many years and wanted to study the theoretical component behind emergency management.
