Tactical Emergency Management

Course Details

A multi-agency course supporting the JESIP Joint Doctrine

Operate at a tactical level?

Delve into decades of experience as we offer you a genuine definitive view on working as a tactical decision maker and emergency responder.

This great hands-on training course really gets under the skin of multi-agency working. It closely examines the role of those working together at tactical level to ensure the best possible outcome when distaster strikes.  You will leave with the confidence, knowledge and skills you will need to be an effective member of your co-ordinating group.

What our customers say:

"A thoroughly enjoyable training programme. The trainer had an excellent knowledge and brought the training to life with excellent examples." Stuart Wright, South Tyneside Council

"A very good course; lots of interaction with other delegates, practical exercises really good to establish learning. Varied methods of training to stimulate interest and embed knowledge" Jeanette Harding, Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council

Who should attend?

The course is primarily designed for those working in organisations that do not have a bespoke internal system of tactical emergency management training. However, those that do have their own tactical command programmes may wish to send delegates to experience the multi-agency dimension. The EPC is the natural home of multi-agency management training and it is the best place to experience this aspect of the job.
It will particularly suit members of local authorities and other agencies whose role is to represent their organisation at the tactical level of multi-agency emergency management.


To equip tactical emergency managers with the knowledge, skills and tools to apply integrated emergency management processes within their own organisation and in multi-responder environments.  


By the end of the event you will be able to:

  • Identify barriers and enablers to collaborative working as a tactical emergency manager
