Such individuals should have extensive knowledge and understanding of the principles of disaster management, the disaster management arrangements in place locally, jurisdictionally, nationally and internationally and the practice of disaster management. They should also possess high level skills necessary to assume leadership roles in emergency management organisations before, during and after such events.
