Emergency incident management

An emergency is a situation that poses an immediate risk to health, life, property or the environment. Most emergencies require urgent intervention to prevent a worsening of the situation before it adversely affects the occupants or visitors to UWA.

Some emergencies (e.g. fire requiring building evacuation) have documented Emergency Management Plans to enable management and staff to quickly and decisively respond to an emergency, which could threaten the safety of persons or property on-campus, or disrupt campus operations.
