Emergency planning training for staff

Staff should email ESREP team if they would like to know more about training.

We arrange training with other agencies, including:

  • Tactical command modules
  • Assess different major incident situations for council and emergency managers at a tactical level.
  • Strategic exercises
  • Recreate situations faced by senior officers at a strategic level during a major incident

We are also involved in local Sussex-wide and national exercises.

Further training courses are available through the Emergency Planning College.

Staff likely to work in emergency rest centres are trained to focus on caring for people who are:

  • Away from their home or place of work following an incident
  • Unhurt survivors following a major incident
