How many escalation contacts can I add to an escalation plan?

Maximum & Minimum Escalation Contacts

You should have a minimum of 3 escalation contacts per plan to ensure there is proper support to any incoming alarm. 

You can add up to 20 escalation contacts per plan. 

Remember that you can also add the team manager and location as contacts within the plan instructions, allowing you up to 12 points of contact per escalation plan. 

We advise that you think critically about who in your organisation should be a contact, as this is an incredibly important role.
