What is Environmental Emergency Preparedness and Response?
Given that environmental emergency situations not only cause causalities and agricultural destruction, but also cause outbreaks of multiple diseases, one needs to build a more integrated response system and combine multiple response approaches to cope with the intensifying environmental emergencies. Environmental Emergency Preparedness and Response provides a framework that will enable you to effectively respond to emergency situations that may have adverse environmental impacts. The application of this practical framework facilitates a quick and sustainable recovery in case of both natural and man-made disasters. The development of response procedures ensures that employees have access to the necessary resources and are aware of techniques/methods to be used when responding to complex emergencies.
