Abstract text

Experiences from joint large-scaled emergencies including real incidents and exercises reveal the demand for management competences of key personnel in emergency preparedness institutions. The management challenges of large-scaled operations may relate to the need a coordinated response from a range of agencies and their personnel, to the multiple tasks and decisions that have to be made in a short period of time and to the coordination of the resources in the operational conditions of the Arctic sea areas. Therefore, there is a need for better understanding of the action patterns of different coordination roles within an incident response, a high level of education, and frequent and relevant training and exercise schemes. This presentation focuses on the recommendations for management competences that should be taken into account in the development of educational concepts for emergency preparedness key management personnel. The reflections on the special competence needs relate to: maritime operations; complex, combined actions including  SAR, medical response, fire and rescue, policing, and/or pollution response and the Arctic environment. The analysis is based on data and ongoing results from the project Marpart 2(Man) «Joint-task force management in High North emergency response -cross-border knowledge acquisition and training for increased joint-force effectiveness».
