University Incident Teams
Response Management and Leadership Group members
are vital to crisis management. They will advise the Vice Presidents and
President respectively. Principal members comprise the core of the Team
for most incidents. Alternates, with similar expertise, are designated
in case of unavailability of the principal. Alternates can also be called
in by the Crisis Manager in the event that an incident:
- Will require management
at the level reflected by Team membership for longer than eight (8)
- The scope of the
incident is anticipated to exceed the capabilities of the Team and the
duration is expected to be short.
The Crisis Manager,
with the advice of the team, will decide when to activate the alternate
Leadership Group. As alternate members may be required to replace
the first team, they should seek an opportunity to rest any time an incidents
management by the principals exceeds two hours and resolution is not imminent.
They should check-out with their principal before proceeding to the GW
Inn (or an alternate lodging option near the scene).
If the alternate is acting for an absent principal, they are responsible
to identify their own alternate should the incident have the potential
to last long enough for relief of the team to be required.
