Why attend this 2022 Floodfighters Masterclass? It is entirely understood that there are well established incident management structures in your country, and that it is both difficult and unlikely that a Government would import and impose a new system to supplant these existing ways of working. However, we need not detract from the value of the saying – “A wise man learns from the experience of others”. If you want to learn how best to manage major hazardous weather related events – to quote that often stated in the media – only occur “sometimes” now or are “unprecedented” but actually aren’t. They will become very much more frequent in the climate changed future, come and talk to people at this Masterclass who have to face these incidents all the time.
