In order to prevent and act quickly in case of a possible emergency, UMinho has elements that guarantee a quick response to these situations.
The people that are part of the internal emergency response team actually work for UMinho* and the security company. These workers provide assistance in case of emergency situations and they have been trained in:
• Providing first aid assistance.
• Evaluating and coordinating an emergency situation.
• Evacuating the occupants from UMinho’s facilities, if necessary.
• Activate the alarm and communicate with work colleges and/or emergency services.
