Course Information


The tactical level – which takes strategic direction and converts it into a plan and then coordinates implementation – is critical to emergency response and recovery.  This short course will help those taking on a role with a tactical emergency management element to prepare for the challenges ahead. 

The course will introduce you to the latest government guidance and joint doctrine – bringing these to life through case studies, discussion and a short table-top exercise.  It will provide you with essential knowledge and introduce the skills needed to apply Integrated Emergency Management processes within your organisation.  The course will also raise your awareness of the main emergency management tools which you can use to help you and your organisation respond to and recover from a crisis.

Key Aspects of Tactical Emergency Management

Who is This Course For?

This course is designed to prepare people who will perform the key role of Tactical Emergency Manager in a responder organisation (public and private sector).  It is particularly suited to those who need to get up to speed quickly, and who will have access to experienced mentors within their own organisation.

Aim & Objectives


To provide delegates with the essential information needed to commence work as a tactical emergency manager.   


By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the main elements of current UK Integrated Emergency Management (IEM) doctrine and their relevance to the tactical emergency manager’s role.
  • Apply Joint Doctrine principles and methodology when managing an incident or emergency.
  • Identify barriers and enablers to collaborative working as a tactical emergency manager.
  • Identify the requirement for justifiable, defensible and recorded decision making when managing an incident or emergency.
  • Apply learning in a discussion exercise.

Benefits for Delegates

On successful completion of the course, you will be ready to take up a role with a tactical emergency management element.  As you will have completed a shortened version of the main Tactical Emergency Management course, you will likely wish to take up your new role in a way that provides on-the-job training and mentoring, so that you can become fully proficient. 

Benefits for Organisations

On return to the workplace successful delegates will be ready to participate in emergency management at the tactical level.  They will also have an understanding of the additional learning needed to become fully effective, so as to design follow-on development in-role.
