In an emergency response, the single most important determining factor for a successful outcome is cooperation. Key response specialists should not waste their time or energy on lengthy discussions or perform in mistrust of one another. By working on the same page, their efforts are bound to be successful, even under the most difficult of circumstances.
Sea Alarm’s philosophy therefore is to connect people long before they may have to work together as part of a wildlife response. Instrumental in this approach is the organisation of conferences, round tables, workshops and training events. One of Sea Alarm’s capabilities as an independent facilitator is creating an open and cooperative atmosphere in which possible problems are identified and addressed before they may compromise a response.
