When disaster strikes, ACT’s immediate imperative is to save lives and to support those who are affected. Experience shows the better ACT members and forums are prepared for a possible disruption of normal life, the faster and more effective a response becomes. Recognizing the importance of being prepared for emergencies and to react quickly in a coordinated way, the ACT Alliance has decided to make emergency preparedness and response one of its strategic priorities, which is also reflected in the ACT Strategic Plan (2011-2014). The objective of the ACT Forum Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan (EPRP) is the development of a common understanding of potential disasters in the area and how the ACT forum will respond to these disasters.
