Effective public information and connection with communities is critical to building safer and more resilient communities.  The need for constant improvement in warnings, information and engagement is always a major component of Royal commissions and inquiries into natural disasters.

It is critical that we focus on improving the capability and capacity of our public information and communications staff by

exposing them to research and experience of their local, interstate and overseas peers.

EMPA’s are the only EM conferences which occur in this region that provide the intense focus on communications and engagement that Australasia’s EM professionals require.
