Crisis plans

The Human Resources Department has drawn up a UT-wide crisis plan for large-scale calamities, such as a fire, an explosion or a bacterial infection, which is in line with the City of Enschede emergency plan. Because communication is very important during a crisis, the Marketing & Communications department (M&C) has drawn up an extra crisis communication plan. The plans are continuously updated and acted out in practice runs. If you have questions about the UT-wide crisis plan, please refer to the Health, Safety & Environment Department (VGM) of the Directorate for Human Resources. If you have questions about the M&C crisis communication plan, please refer to the M&C Crisis Communication Adviser.
