Emergency fronters are members of a system that front during emergency situations to take care of the system and ensure that system is safe. [2]

Emergency fronters may or may not have limited/little to no emotional capacity, empathy, or emotional vulnerability. They are usually protectors and/or caretakers of the system, though it is not necessary.

Some qualities of an emergency fronter may be (but is not limited to):

  1. Able to take front, stabilize and keep front during system imbalance
  2. Crisis managing
  3. Gatekeeping; keeping triggered and/or panicked headmates away from front
  4. Able to soothe and ground the body quickly
  5. Can resist and/or stop the harmful urges or coping mechanisms
  6. Can implement barriers if needed to buffer the harm
  7. Resistance to triggers (or lack of triggers)
  8. Resilience/lack of emotional vulnerability
