Introduction

Emergency Information Management and Telecommunications

This trainer's guide is a companion to the module on Emergency Information Management and Telecommunications. It provides a format and tools to enable you to conduct a training workshop in an interactive and stimulating manner. You may utilize this guide as the foundation for a complete and structured presentation. However, it is not a rigid instrument that must be followed, inclusive of every overhead and exercise. You are in the best position to select and relate the material to the experiences and needs of your audience. Your creativity and responsiveness to the workshop participants and the dynamics of the training session are essential to a valuable learning experience. So plan to develop the agenda and select the overheads and exercises that are appropriate for your group.
