Session 3 Tuesday 30 June, 2pm Emergency planning

Session 3 will explore the difficulties of bench marking for emergency planning and how much can be planned in advance for natural disasters. 'Natural disasters do not occur in the same location, so the use of past experience is severely limited and often only a book reference. When a disaster does occur it is imperative that proper records are kept of the failures as well as the successes of problem solving,' said session chairman John Heys, who is director of transportation and technical services for Pembrokshire County Council.

Heys will be giving a paper on the Sea Empress disaster which will be followed by a paper on the Norway spring flood disasters.
