  2. An unforeseen occurrence or combination of circumstances which calls for immediate action or remedy; pressing necessity; exigency.

    To whom she might her doubts propose, On all emergencies that rose.

Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

"unforeseen occurrence requiring immediate attention," 1630s, from Latin emergens, present participle of emergere "to rise out or up" (see emerge). Or from emerge + -ency. As an adjective by 1881.


n. 1 A situation which poses an immediate risk and which requires urgent attention. 2 (context US Canada often attributive English) The department of a hospital that treats emergencies. 3 An individual brought in at short notice to replace a member of staff, a player in a sporting team, etc. 4 (context archaic English) The quality of being emergent; sudden or unexpected appearance; an unforeseen occurrence.

  1. n. a sudden unforeseen crisis (usually involving danger) that requires immediate action; "he never knew what to do in an emergency" [syn: exigency, pinch]

  2. a state in which martial law applies; "the governor declared a state of emergency"

  3. a brake operated by hand; usually operates by mechanical linkage [syn: hand brake, emergency brake, parking brake]


An emergency is a situation that poses an immediate risk to health, life, property, or environment. Most emergencies require urgent intervention to prevent a worsening of the situation, although in some situations, mitigation may not be possible and agencies may only be able to offer palliative care for the aftermath.

While some emergencies are self-evident (such as a natural disaster that threatens many lives), many smaller incidents require that an observer (or affected party) decide whether it qualifies as an emergency. The precise definition of an emergency, the agencies involved and the procedures used, vary by jurisdiction, and this is usually set by the government, whose agencies ( emergency services) are responsible for emergency planning and management.

Emergency (NGO)

Emergency is a humanitarian NGO that provides emergency medical treatment to civilian victims of war, especially in relation to landmines. It was founded by war surgeon Gino Strada in 1994 in Milan ( Italy).

Gino Strada and the other founders of Emergency aimed to bring free, high-quality medical and surgical assistance to war victims. Over time, their humanitarian projects assumed a broader view, including giving human rights to those who suffer the social consequences from wars. Emergency promotes a culture of peace and solidarity.

Emergency strives for neutrality in every war; its aim is to guarantee the right of free medical assistance to the population affected by a war. Today Emergency is active in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Sudan and Sri Lanka. Emergency’s humanitarian projects usually involve construction, support, and operation of permanent hospitals. However, Emergency has also given short-term emergency assistance to existing hospitals in areas with a critical need for temporary care by providing specialized personnel, drugs or instruments. These short-term projects have included Algeria, Angola, Eritrea, Nicaragua, Palestine and Serbia. As of 2013, more than six million people have received care from Emergency health centers.

Emergency (1959 TV series)

Emergency is an Australian television series produced by GTV-9 in 1959.

The series was set in the busy casualty department of a major Melbourne hospital, and is notable for being one of the first-ever dramas shown on Australian television.

Made by Melbourne's GTV-9 in co-operation with the Royal Melbourne Hospital, and based on Britain's "Emergency Ward 10", "Emergency" starred Brian James as Dr. Geoffrey Thompson, Syd Conabere as orderly George Rogers, and Judith Godden as Nurse Jill Adamson. Moira Carleton also featured as Matron Evans.

The series was produced primarily in the GTV-9 studio, with brief (usually pre-credit) exterior sequences shot on 35mm film by newsreel cameramen. The episodes were not broadcast live, but were "kinescoped" to meet programming requirements, and facilitate later screening in Sydney.

The series' premise was simple: a basic dramatic exploration of cases passing through the Casualty ward. Scripts were written by GTV staffers Roland Strong (series producer) and Denzil Howson (series director) under pseudonyms.

Sponsorship came from British Petroleum, and a contract was signed for 52 half-hour episodes. The series debuted on GTV-9 on 16 February 1959, and on Sydney's ATN-7 a week later. Critics initially appeared fairly neutral, however a highly negative article on the series in a Sydney newspaper caused BP to withdraw sponsorship 16 weeks into the series run. Faced with having to carry the production expenses alone, GTV-9 discontinued production, with the final episode airing in Melbourne on 1 June 1959.

Following the series demise, Brian James went on to lead roles in the ABC serial Stormy Petrel in 1960, and ATN-7's period drama Jonah in 1962, later appearing as George Tippit in the drama serial "Skyways" (1979–81).

Conabere and Carleton appeared in guest roles in most of the Australian TV dramas on the 1960s and 1970s.

Emergency (series)

Emergency is a video game series of rescue simulations by the German developer Sixteen Tons Entertainment and creative director and founder of the series Ralph Stock. Publisher of the first game in 1998 was TopWare Interactive; In 2002 Emergency 2 was published by Take 2 Interactive who went on to publish both Emergency 3 in 2005 and Emergency 4 + Gold Edition in 2006 alongside the publisher Rondomedia. As of 2010 Deep Silver has taken over the publishing operations of the Emergency Series and its Spin-Offs.

In the game, players take control of the emergency services; firefighters, ambulance services, police and, technical services (THW). The central element of the Emergency games is to head up operations of fictional rescues, crimes, medical and catastrophe management, commanding a pool of vehicles and personnel.

Controls and graphics are typical of a Real-Time Strategy game; using the left-mouse button to select your unit(s), the right-mouse button to command movement or an action of the selected unit(s). Camera work takes typical angles of the RTS genre.

The Missions(Events) take on a standard system of events in an numerical order, each mission harder and more demanding then the last, each mission may require the player to use different emergency services to deal with the multitude of events. It is iconic for missions in Emergency to start off with a short cinematic cut scene of the cause of the emergency the player is attending.

As of Emergency 5 missions (renamed to events) take on a different system, now all events can be attended in one game session eliminating any loading screens and making the gameplay flow, between each major event the player will deal with standard dynamic emergencies such as car accidents, medical emergencies, crimes, fires, missing persons, pipeline ruptures, and many more.
