The purpose of this Plan is to provide guidance for initiating and managing the initial response to critical incidents that may significantly impact NIEHS facilities and occupants. This Plan provides the structure for decision-making and the mobilization of resources within NIEHS to respond to campus-wide or regional emergencies and/or disasters. Specific contingency and action plans have been developed for a variety of emergency situations, for example, hazardous material release, fire, electrical power failure, civil disorder, and severe weather. As appropriate, these specific action plans and other contingency plans are to be used to guide response actions.
