Emergency Management Australia Podcast - Episode 19
November 24, 2016
#EMApodcast celebrates the first birthday of the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience (AIDR), launched last year to deliver a fresh approach to emergency management education, professional development and knowledge sharing for a disaster-resilient Australia.
We talk to AIDR Director John Bates and the founding partners – AFAC, the Red Cross, the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC and the Attorney-General’s Department – about what they’ve achieved and what’s ahead.
The Red Cross talks about their RediPlan, a useful preparedness guide for disasters.
And how can a smoke alarm alert a deaf person? #EMApodcast talks to the ACT Fire and Rescue Service about some innovative solutions.
