EMERGENCY PLANNING CONFERENCE TO FOCUS ON NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY

This year’s annual Emergency Planning Society conference on 28-29 June at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff will examine the implications of the UK’s National Security Strategy and the new National Security Risk Assessment.

The two-day conference will enable UK’s resilience practitioners to drill down into the full implications of the government’s new National Security Strategy, according to Tony Thompson, chair of the Emergency Planning Society (EPS).

“This event draws the various threads together under one roof, giving delegates not just the bigger picture but also practical advice on how it can be implemented and giving an insight into potential future developments,” he added.

In addition to sessions on counter terrorism, cyber security, flood recovery, community resilience, there will also be an overview of the implications for crowd safety after the Hillsborough review.

Speakers include DC Superintendent Scott Wilson, Metropolitan Police Service; Heather Shepherd, National Flood Forum; Gary Hall, Chief Executive of Chorley Council; Sue Storey, Sports Ground Safety Authority; and Alessia Morriss, Head of Natural Hazards Policy Team, Resilience Division, Scottish Government.
