One of the greatest aspects about the field of emergency management is the community of practice we share. It’s recognized throughout the entire profession that we improve as a practice not only through our own lessons learned buy by sharing and learning from everyone.
The following website provides links to a multitude of manuals on various emergency management related topics from Australia. http://www.em.gov.au/Publications/Australianemergencymanualseries/Pages/default.aspx The Aussies deal with all the same hazards we do – with wild fire, flood, and typhoon topping off the list for much of the continent. Take a few minutes to look through what they have shared – you just might learn something, I know I did!
