Nature Of Emergencies

Incidents or emergencies may be considered in two broad categories, which sometimes overlap, namely, ‘crises of person’ and ‘crises of property’. Incidents or emergencies may also be considered in terms of their extent, namely, isolated or major incidents / disasters. In the case of major incidents / disasters, outside emergency services as well as major efforts by the Emergency Response Group would be required, and the Management Team (Senior Management and Academic Leadership Forum) would activate major policy considerations and decisions.

An isolated incident may not require Management intervention, but would involve selected members of the Emergency Response Group, as required.
