Tier 1: Response context and principles of OpenWHO. Ready4Response course series
Ready4Response aims to develop consistent learning standards across the emergency response workforce, equipping participants with essential competencies needed to work across the various levels of response. In Tier 1 you will learn about the emergency response context and principles, focusing on the all-hazards approach.

- describe the principles of all-hazards emergency response
