In the normalisation phase:

  • the GRIP upgrading is downgraded by the emergency services
  • all measures taken to process the incident are lifted.

The person who requested a measure must also cancel it. Practice shows that the highways authority tends to be the last to leave the (designated) incident scene and cancels the measures.

Organising the incident site

During the processing of an incident officials of the various emergency services are at the scene of the incident (PI) with their vehicles. In the beginning, certainly, the situation is cluttered and this has to be quickly rectified. The distribution of tasks and responsibilities within IM is based on the premise that all IM chain partners operate from their own tasks and authorisation reference. To process the incident safely and quickly it is vital that there are regulations and that everyone knows them and what they must adhere to.

Storage place

There is also a designated storage place or ‘dump’ in IM where all the materials are brought that come from the vehicle(s) involved in the incident, including the personal possessions of the victims.

The storage place is important for the police. It gives the police a good overview of the incident and the traces. It is conditional on the police giving permission for the materials to be brought to the dump and that a police officer is always present at the storage place.

Position of emergency service vehicles

The position of vehicles depends on:

  • the site of the incident;
  • any victims present;
  • requisite material;
  • location of the traces;
  • work of the emergency services.

The vehicles must be positioned so that transport to and fro is always possible. The vehicle in the so-called buffer position ensures extra protection for the emergency service personnel (see REVIs). The guidelines also state where the other emergency service vehicles must be positioned at the site of the incident.
