GISF – Remote Field Crisis Management Course

Remote Field Crisis Management Course

The environments in which staff travel and work present a constant risk of security and safety incidents. The majority of these incidents, should they affect personnel, would normally be dealt with and managed through the existing in-country management structure, with support from the Head Office if required. However, exceptional crisis situations can arise which, due to the nature and severity of the incident or its wider implications for the organisation, are beyond the scope of normal programme management mechanisms or decision-making. As a result of such exceptional events, special coordination and decision-making must be undertaken. Although these events are rare, the successful management of any crisis situation is dependent on the degree of preparedness of the agency, combined with clearly defined roles, responsibilities and communication lines, especially where a coordinated and effective response from many different departments is required.
