Emergencies and major incidents

Accidents, whether human or natural, occur from time to time. They will often be managed by the emergency services alone, but on occasions the emergency may be either too large in scale or too complex for the emergency services to deal with unassisted.

During these times, a major incident may be declared and assistance sought from a wide range of professional partners. We are one of the agencies that would respond to this type of emergency in supporting the emergency services and the community to deal with the effects of a major incident.
