Presented by Superintendent Cameron Edgar No one expects to experience the death of a colleague on duty, let alone have to manage the post incident environment and all the people it touches. This presentation will take you through a personal perspective of the immediate and longer-term experiences and actions following the death of a team mate and what has been learnt through internal experience and guidance from others. In particular, we will discuss insights into how people can react and practical considerations for working through traumatic events.
