Major incidents and disruptive challenges requiring urgent action can strike suddenly, unexpectedly and anywhere.
Many agencies have a part to play in dealing with these emergencies and their aftermath, including floods, chemical leaks and gas explosions.
What is Emergency Planning?
Emergency Planning is the process whereby the Council prepares to deal with major emergencies and incidents and assist in the welfare and recovery of the community. The aim of Emergency Planning is to maintain appropriate arrangements and procedures that enable the council to respond to and manage major incidents.
The primary legislation that underpins our work is the Civil Contingency Act 2004
(CCA 2004). To fulfil this requirement we work closely with our partners in the Local Resilience Forum (LRF). See website below for more details.
