What Constitutes an Emergency or a disaster?
  • An emergency, or a disaster is an extraordinary
    event that disrupts the normal lives of people or

    immediate and coordinated response by trained
    personnel who must function together in a team
    effort.

Types of Emergencies
  • Biological (bacterial, viral, toxin spills,
    exposure, leaks, theft, flu-pandemic etc..)
  • Chemical (accidental spill, exposure, leaks,
    thefts..)
  • Fire/explosion (housekeeping, electrical or
    chemical-related)
  • Medical/Personal Injuries (work, or
    Health-related...)
  • Radiation (isotope spills, exposure, material
    leaks, theft..)
  • Threats (bombs, weapons use)
  • Weather (tornadoes, power outages, flooding)

  • The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) has in
    place a number of guidelines for students,
    faculty, and staff to follow in order to minimize
    the impact of emergencies.
