Bronze

The title of a function (the others are Gold and Silver) adopted by each of the emergency services (police, fire, ambulance, emergency medical) in the event of major incident (mass disaster) in the UK, which is role, rather than rank, related.

Bronze is used the same way as “operational” in other emergency plans. Bronze controls and deploys the resources of their respective service within a geographical sector or specific role and implements the tactics defined by Silver. As the incident progresses and more resources attend the rendezvous points, the level of supervision increases proportions. As senior managers arrive they will be assigned functions within the Gold, Silver and Bronze structure.
