Following the fantastic feedback we have received from previous Forum events, we are delighted to offer another opportunity to take part in a facilitated incident management exercise, brought to you in partnership with the Institute of Risk Management. 

The event programme is designed to help further develop your organisation’s response to a major emergency, as well as helping to identify practical improvements in your crisis management, security, risk and business continuity management arrangements where needed. 

The exercise will be supported by experienced colleagues from the industry, the Emergency Services and Greater Manchester Authorities who will also participate in the exercise to provide a valuable insight into operational response and learning from previous major incidents, allowing you to assess and refine your own planning assumptions. 

The morning session will close with input from North West Counter Terrorism Police sharing practical advice and guidance to help your organisation prepare evacuation and lockdown procedures – this came out overwhelmingly as a topic of interest in the latest MBCF member survey. 

We are very grateful to our partners at Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service for allowing the use of their venue for this event and their ongoing support of the Manchester Business Continuity Forum.
