Scribing for Emergency Management

Emergency events and disasters test the ability of first responders, emergency management professionals, local governments and the Government of Alberta to protect people, property, the environment and the economy. In high stress situations where decisions are made in minutes and not hours and the stakes are high, emergency managers’ reliance on strong, credible information is crucial. One of the primary methods to capture and retain information within disasters is through the use of Scribes.

Scribing for Emergency Management informs participants about the integral role they play emergency management and how their efforts directly contribute to the organization’s response efforts. Course participants will be taught scribing methodologies and best practices followed by competency based training to apply these skills in several scribing exercises.
