International Conference on Emergency Preparedness (InterCEPt)
21st to 23rd September 2010. The Challenges of Mass Evacuation
Hosted by the Aston Centre for Research into Safety and Security (CRISIS), the International Conference on Emergency Preparedness (InterCEPt) aims to facilitate the exchange of academic research, innovations and best operational practices in the management of emergency preparedness. InterCEPt provides a unique opportunity for academics, practitioners and policy makers to share lessons, plans, approaches and methods to prepare governments for when disaster strikes, as well as to identify promising new approaches to prepare the public to respond to major incidents.
The theme of this year’s conference is mass evacuation i.e. the displacement of thousands/millions of people in response to a major catastrophic incident. Mass evacuation presents some unusual challenges for emergency preparedness, for example, the coordination, transportation and sheltering of thousands of people. The conference will deal will all the aspects related to mass evacuation, from mitigation to preparedness, response and recovery.
