Message from the Emergency Preparedness and Support Team (EPST)
We equip staff members and crises responders with the knowledge and skills to build resilience, to act effectively in response to crises or emergency situations, and to care for staff members and families of staff who perish in malicious acts and natural disasters. EPST works across the global Secretariat drawing upon the diverse and varied expertise and resources in preparing and responding to any incident.
Here you will find resources available for emergency preparedness: assistance for staff members during and post-emergency/critical incident; mechanisms to respond to emergency and natural disaster situations; and resources for surviving staff and family members affected by critical situations.
EPS Team – dedicated to supporting staff members
You may contact any of us at any time, and your feedback about any issues on emergency preparedness and support is listened to.
