Second RRANZ RRLP Tier One Cohort successfully completed

The second Tier One RRANZ Response and Recovery Leadership Programme face-to-face component took place from September 30 - October 4 in Christchurch, with participants coming from local and regional CDEM, district level-Police leadership, and the wider emergency management field.

The course included further enhancement of the contemporary hazards scenario-based activities and the observational assessment within them, supported by MCDEM and ResOrgs personnel. Highlights were visits to Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu's Te Whare o Te Waipounamu for presentations on Iwi roles in emergency response and recovery management (with case studies of the earthquake response in Kaikoura and the support to the Muslim community after the mosque shootings) and the Joint Canterbury EOC for presentations on Police and CDEM leadership issues and opportunities.

Feedback from participants on the on-line and face-to-face components of the course has been very positive, with a lot of learning, enthusiasm and confidence being taken away to enhance their own and their organisations’ leadership capabilities now and into the future.

The third and last RRANZ RRLP contact course of 2019 will be hosted by the Waikato CDEM Group Emergency Management Office in Hamilton later this year.
