Safety is the first priority Safety is the first priority in event management. Recent major emergency incidents such as the terror attack in Manchester Arena, concert fire in Oakland, and bombing in Boston Marathon, etc, served as painful reminder of the ever-present threat in any live mass event. The need of continuous assessment of risks, as well as developing and implementing up-to-date emergency plans are essential for effective response to all kinds of emergencies including man-made and natural disasters.

Train-the-Trainer Programme
Asia-Pacific Region suffers the highest number of disasters across the globe. As Hong Kong is a key member in the region and one of the most densely populated cities in the world, both its public health and education sectors should play pivotal roles in disaster preparedness and response.   The Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response (CCOUC) and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) jointly organised the Train-the-Trainer Programme on Disaster Preparedness and Response for Secondary School Teachers. The programme aims to enhance community resilience and promote disaster awareness in Hong Kong by strengthening the secondary school Liberal Studies curriculum.
