International Emergency Response Open Day


An event with displays from national and international emergency response organisations.

The day will show how national and international organisations respond to emergencies and how this is evolving taking account of emerging technologies and decreasing budget.

Additionally, the event will provide opportunities for academic organisations looking into research possibilities and recruitment opportunities for relevant industries with attendees from colleges, universities, emergency response rosters and the general public.
