The Manage a Crisis training is the most important training I have ever done in my life.

Nicole Tetrault

Lead Drilling Engineer, Todd Energy, New Zealand

Paul is the consummate professional, extremely well versed in all facets of Emergency Management. He has been instrumental in leading a substantial review of the Glen Eira Emergency Management Plan to ensure that it meets State Government requirements. As a result we achieved an excellent audit result with a significant improvement when compared to previous audit performance. Paul also delivered recovery training for Glen Eira staff that was professionally planned and implemented. Paul’s professional and diligent approach coupled with his breath of emergency management experience makes him an asset to any organisation.
Mark Saunders

Manager Public Health & Community Development, Municipal Recovery Manager, Glen Eira City Council

EMCS understands MOPT’s needs well after several years of engagement. We feel comfortable that our staff are adequately prepared for emergency situations and the training we have received from EMCS is essential to our readiness. Scenarios were realistic and really tested those participating. Full use of the control room setting adds to the realism as well as good visual aids to enhance the scenarios. I think we will continue to head down the path of providing more of a training element for staff in the VCC rather than just the scenario/review day. This was significantly improved this year with the workshop that was conducted. I would definitely recommend EMCS services to other events and venues.

Daniel Andrews

Senior Event Manager, Australian Open, Melbourne & Olympic Parks Trust

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all of your help and assistance. It has been a pleasure doing business with EMCS as we worked to meet the training requirements of the Otway Gas Plant personnel. You have been fantastic to work with and your assistance in organising and delivering the training at Otway was extremely appreciated. I can certainly say with conviction that EMCS conducted training for Origin Energy in a professional manner with obvious knowledge of the subject being delivered.

Suzanne Karlinski

Training & Competency Advisor, Otway Gas Plant, Origin Energy

The level of experience within EMCS was evident when dealing with Paul. The depth of knowledge in emergency management and the ease with which the training was delivered was very useful in assisting our staff to understand and practice the principles relating planning, preparedness, response and recovery. The use of real life examples in the training was a great way to gain credibility in the subject being taught. EMCS is an excellent service provider who will be used again as the need arises.

Peter Wallis

Manager Prisons Support, Operations Division, Corrections Victoria

The understanding of the project is of a very high level. EMCS are very thorough with planning and provide solid/relevant feedback where required. Responses to queries, feedback and plans are provided in a timely manner, which is essential given the tight time lines that events operate within. Planning for Emergency Management Exercise is thorough and well thought out in the context of our events. The associated exercise is well executed, realistic to the events and involves the majority of attendees to ensure learnings/embedding of processes across the group. Paul’s thorough nature, willingness to discuss issues and provide input is appreciated.

Jonathan Hocking

Venue Operations Manager, Australian Grand Prix Corporation

The whole process from planning to delivery of the Emergency Relief Centre Training and exercise ran smoothly. Time was dedicated to scoping our proposal and a good understanding of what we hoped to achieve was demonstrated in the project outline and actual session. The session was well planned and delivered and presented in a way that enabled both experienced and non experienced staff to participate fully and obtain a good understanding of what would be required of them should Council need to establish an Emergency Relief Centre. I would recommend EMCS and would have no hesitation using you again in future.

Lisa Stafford

Deputy Municipal Recovery Manager, City of Stonnington

EMCS delivered professional presentations, which encompassed all facets of Emergency Management and was extremely useful in keeping staff up to date and prepared for all incidents in the future.

Gary Ryan

Manager Safety & Security, Courts & Tribunals, Dept of Justice, Victoria

EMCS delivered the project in a timely manner with regular progress updates. EMCS has enabled our organisation to begin to push beyond the standard concepts of risk management towards a broader and holistic review in this area.

Jason Robilliard

General Manager, Events, Bicycle Network Victoria

Training was very well received by the team with many commenting on how valuable and useful it was for them in their roles. It did help us to review our processes to improve them and increase readiness to deal with emergencies.

Kim Kearsey

Manager Libraries and Learning, Frankston City Council

The review highlighted VIFM gaps, we were aware of these gaps however the evaluation was useful to put them into context. Yes the service was great- it was great to be able to have an independent person provide the evaluation report.

Dr Jodie Leditschke

Manager Forensic Technical Services, Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine

Paul brings a great wealth of experience and skills in Emergency Management practice with a common sense approach. Trainees have provided very positive feedback about the sessions, which he has conducted for the business.

Paul Rasmussen

Team Leader, Hydrology & Flood Warning, Melbourne Water

We very much appreciated the assistance provided and look forward to working with you again.

Judy Leitch
