As a community volunteer I found this course added to my capacity to support my local community in an ever‐changing world. The course was practical and usable. I was able to take my learnings back to our hall committee. Due to this our community have embarked on establishing an Emergency Action Plan for the Valley. Highly recommend for those who are involved in their community.
