Company B developed a partnership with a First Nation community to assist with the COVID-19 health crisis incident response. The partnership, between Company B and the First Nation community, set the stage for a successful public-private partnership.
Company B partnered with the First Nation community to assist with the COVID-19 health crisis incident response. At the end of the COVID-19 incident response, it was determined that a post incident analysis (PIA) needed to be completed to learn from the event. Company B nor the First Nation community possessed the skill sets to provide a critical assessment of the community COVID-19 incident response. RIC was hired to conduct a comprehensive PIA for Company B and the community.
In short, RIC provided Company B and the First Nation community with a detailed report on incident response gaps, areas for improvement, and recommendations on how to strengthen the pillars of emergency management. Specifically, prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
This gave the community a pathway to clearly identify emergency management roles and responsibilities, incident management program structure, systems of governance and avenues to incorporate cultural knowledge into overall emergency management programming.
Chief and Council, and people in the community can now rest assured that the department of Emergency Management has a clear vision and action plan to move forward to prepare for and become more resilient to future disasters.
