Australian and New Zealand communities are experiencing a period of great adjustment and now more than ever it is important government agencies work together to ensure public safety and collaborative emergency response. Covid-19, crime, natural disasters, cyber threats and the increasing risk of terrorism are just some of the challenges community leaders are facing. With areas of rapid population redistribution adding to the difficulty of predicting resource allocation, up to date emergency preparedness and innovative methods of incident response are crucial to mitigating risk and protecting the public.

This series provided an opportunity to network and collaborate with leaders in the field and feature speakers who highlighted the latest emerging strategies to mitigate risks and prepare effectively for the biggest issues facing a changing society.
