Emergency leadership training for rangers

Charles Darwin University’s Darwin Centre for Bushfire Research, and the Humanitarian, Emergency and Disaster Management team hosted 25 remote community rangers at a leadership skill-building workshop in Noonamah recently.

The workshop was in response to an urgent need to build skills and capabilities among people from remote communities across Northern Australia where emergency services resources were limited.

Training included three accredited units of competency in leadership scenario planning and interaction with key emergency management organisations.

The program was designed in consultation with Indigenous leaders and included “two-way learning”, combining Indigenous knowledges and Western methodologies.
