The purpose of this project is to assess the emergency management setup of the municipality and the fire department of Esbjerg, Denmark. Furthermore, analyze an emergency situation exercise with the municipal management team, incorporating assistance with a simulation software.
First of all, a preliminary understanding of the current emergency management setup is carried out, including legislation standards, the organizational structure, and the current emergency plans. In addition, a hypothetical emergency scenario is created, combined with the use of a simulation software, in order to assess the team’s performance. Moreover, a FRAM model is created to describe outcomes based on a variability in socio-technical systems.
In conclusion, improvement can be drawn out of the emergency management performance during the exercise simulation, such as communication, response time during decision making, and solutions quality. As well as the incorporation of simulation software to aid in the training and practice exercises.
