Introduction

Ten types of services which may attend a disaster 1. Fire service 2. Police 3. Ambulance service 4. Coast guards 5. The army 6. Marines/navy 7. R.A.F 8. R.N.L.I 9. Local council 10. Water board In the public services there are major incident plans for each type of service, the local city council of each town or city have their own incident plans, so if anything happens then they will have an advantage and will know what to do in most cases. Each service combines in incident planning and therefore work together in major incidents. The overall incident plan enables each service to understand what their roles are and other service roles are, however there could still be many negative effects to such huge incident plans, including communication problems and misunderstanding between certain services. Major incident plans are draw up in advance, the type of plans are for larger buildings and areas with large amounts of people this is in case a major incident occurs then the services can act quickly and sort out problems a lot faster and save many lives. The 10 services above are mostly involved in major incidents, some services like the police, fire and ambulance services are always involved, additionally if some incidents are very serious and a large scale disaster then additional services may be called in like the R.A.F and the Marines. ...read more.

Lastly there is a bronze commander, they control the organisations resources at the incident and will be found with their staff working on the disaster site. This is how the services commmunicate with each other. Disaster Training Simulation I' am going to design a flood disaster plan and show how it will be relevant to the public services for planning for such an incident. It's a major flood which has put most of the city under water, there will be many services attending this disaster.

There would be the fire service at the scene pumping water away from the flooded areas, and the police would be securing the area, and would evacuate the local houses and buildings. This would be good practice because the services would have to communicate to each other and at the end of the training they would know what was required by them and each of the other services. ...read more.
