It is the responsibility of management to evaluate, and plan for, potential emergencies within the building complex or industry they control. Sometimes the responsibility extends to the public who may be effected by the emergency situation.
An emergency may be man-made or as a result of natural happenings. In general terms, it can be defined as an unexpected occurrence requiring an immediate action.
Occasionally an emergency will escalate into a major disaster. This is described as a serious disruption to life arising with little or no warning and causing or threatening death or serious injury to large numbers of people and likely to overwhelm the normal service.
