About this course


“If it’s not written down, it didn’t happen!”

Log keeping plays a critical role in emergency response and in recovery.

Loggists are responsible for ensuring decisions are recorded so that they can be shared to direct activity across responding organisations. Decision logs also are vital for recording decisions made in the heat of the moment, so that after the event, responders can explain what took place and why.

Drawing on lessons learnt from numerous events and enquiries, this course will train you to maintain a high-quality decision log during an emergency or recovery operation.

Depending on availability, this course will either be delivered using our Connected Learning Suite (CLS) or Microsoft Teams.
