Illness and Emergencies

Just as a student may experience illness or an emergency at home, sometimes these occur while overseas. We strongly advise you to familiarize yourself with your programs specific guidance on how to handle illness and emergencies BEFORE arriving so you are prepared to act if the situation arises.

 EMERGENCY INCIDENT RESPONSE PLANNING

FIE is committed to a prompt and efficient response to any incident that would impact the operation of a program. The Emergency Incident Response Plan is carefully reviewed on an ongoing basis by the Emergency Incident Review Group (EIRG). EIRG consists of senior managers and department heads and it convenes at least once a year. EIRG is also centrally responsible for communication strategy following a Major Critical Incident (MCI).
