Emergency planning


In an emergency, or to escalate incidents to the University Silver Team, contact the University Security Control Centre 24/7 on (3)31818 or dial 101 from the internal network.

See Stay Safe Cambridge Uni for guidance on COVID-19.



However effective an organisation’s risk management procedures are, they cannot prevent all crises.

Emergency planning is crucial preparation for how an organisation is to react the moment an incident unfolds and in its aftermath.  

Every institution must have an Emergency Action Plan; the University has its own institution-wide Emergency Management Plan as well as a template for University institutions to use locally.
