Transition Periods

This page lists the transition period notices given from November 2016. Note: not all emergencies involve a transition period.

Transition periods support a transition from response into the initial recovery phase. It is the giving of notice of transition period that provides for recovery managers and others with powers designed to assist with recovery for a specific period of time (28 days for a local transition period and 90 days for a national transition period but these can be extended).
