Emergency Management Team

Some crisis may be systemic, in that they affect the whole community. If this type of crisis arises The Emergency Management Team becomes active in response; examples include: 

  • Hazardous materials (i.e. chemical, gas, poison, etc.)
  • Utility (i.e. loss of fire alarm protection/communication systems/heating/cooling/water, mass blackout/brownout, etc.)
  • Structural (i.e. fire, explosion, collapse)
  • Civil disorder (i.e. demonstration, explosives, bomb threat, hostage, terrorist activities)
  • Transportation (i.e. aircraft crash, vehicle crash, derailment)
  • Natural events (i.e. snow/ice storm, tornado, flood, landslide, earthquake)

The University's Complete Emergency Response Plan can be found at: University of Guelph Campus Police Services - Emergency Action Plan

If the crisis involves a student, the Manager of Students at Risk will be notified.
