AbstractEmergency response planning incorporates several key factors, including the credible hazards that might precipitate an emergency at a given installation, the weather conditions that can be expected to prevail and shape the physical environment in the region, the safety measures and equipment alternatives that may be used, the people who have to escape and respond, and the interaction of these factors. Emergency response is examined in the context of offshore industry activities and shipping in ice-covered regions. The aim is to identify key issues relating to escape, evacuation and rescue in cold regions where sea ice occurs.
