Miikka Toivonen from Southwest Finland Emergency Services and Kia Petersen from Danish Civil Protection League have been busy planning and then re-planning one of the significant OIL SPILL events, a seminar that focuses on the different aspects of managing an oil spill incident and the issues related to communication throughout the response process.

Eventually, it was decided that the 2-day seminar in Copenhagen is transformed into a 1-day online event. This Communication and Incident Management webinar will be held on Tuesday, 9 March 2021, 9AM−1PM (CET). The program includes four presentations focusing on crisis communication, communication in the field, and lessons learned from past incidents. A panel discussion will follow each presentation. Time will be reserved also for networking. Participation is free of charge.

Stay tuned, more information will follow!
