Emergency response includes elements such as preparedness, mobilisation, operation and resilience. This breadth of responsibilities and emergent dynamic tasks make emergency response complicated. A community’s resilience is dependent on the disaster’s disruption level and the community’s level of preparedness.
Disaster response management is complex, difficult to anticipate and dependant on a broad range of circumstancial and related factors. The intersection of responses from official emergency services and those more spontaneous efforts of by citizens in the community can sometimes produce confusion, overlap of effort, inefficiency and even at times, complicate and increase the challenge of response.

It brings rigor to the enagement of non- core skilled volunteer management and allows for increased preparadness, connection, mobilisation and measurement of community volunteering.
