Third successful RRANZ Tier 1 Course held in Hamilton

With an overarching goal to improve Aotearoa New Zealand's response and recovery leadership capability, the RRANZ Consortium held another Tier 1 Response and Recovery Leadership Development Course in Hamilton in late 2019.

Going from strength to strength, the third Tier 1 course saw its participants hear from leading experts on a wide variety of aspects of response and recovery, including those currently responding to the Australian fires. Participants were put through a week of applied exercises that embedded and extended their learning and capabilities.  Many of those involved had the opportunity to apply their newly honed capabilities in emergencies over the subsequent few months, including for some the Whakaari White Island response and recovery.

RRANZ would like to extend their sincere thanks to the Waikato CDEM Group for hosting the Hamilton face-to-face course at their Group Emergency Management Office.

Building on the successes of the Tier 1 programme and the lessons learned from subsequent response and recovery contexts, the Tier 2 RRANZ RRLP programme is now under development. Watch this space!
