Emergency Response Team


Once an emergency had occurred and the Emergency Management and Continuity of Operations plan has been activated, the Emergency Response Team (ERT) will oversee the recovery and restoration process that is executed by the response teams. The ERT will fulfill many operational functions during an emergency and is the primary vehicle for implementing and managing the emergency response.
