Crisis Response Model

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)
