EMERGENCY INCIDENT RESPONSE PLAN
All students are sent a copy of the Dublin Emergency Incident Response Plan, which is reviewed regularly by the Emergency Incident Review Group (EIRG). EIRG consists of senior managers and department heads from across FIE and convene at least once a year.
Invoking the procedure is at the discretion of EIRG and the EIRG based on the assessed threat to our Dublin-based student’s health, and welfare.
Students should also check their emails regularly, and keep FIE informed of any changes to their email address. For other communique, we recommend that students look out for alerts from:
- Irish government Travel Advice
- US State Department Travel Advisories - US citizens/nationals are also encouraged to register with the Smart Traveler Enrolment Program (STEP)
- Dublin Embassies, Consulates & High Commissions
MAJOR CRITICAL INCIDENTS
In the rare event of a firearms or weapons attack:
- Run to a place of safety – this is a better option than to surrender or negotiate – if there’s nowhere to go then…
- Hide remember to turn your phone to silent and turn off vibrate – barricade yourself in if you can
- Tell the police by calling 112 or 999 when it is safe to do so
If you are in in the vicinity of the MCI, follow the guidance of relevant officials (e.g. fire marshals, event security, paramedics). If you are not in the vicinity, follow guidance and seek updates from official, credible sources such as RTE News or the Gardaí.
