Emergency Planning falls into four broad categories:
Planning - The Council is continually assessing the risks posed within Leicester and developing and maintaining plans to ensure that procedures are in place to control and mitigate their impact.
Training and Exercising - The service conducts a programme of training and exercises for our staff and partner agencies to make them aware of the need to plan. Training and exercising helps provide an effective response.
Liaison - The service works closely with partner agencies and stakeholders to share information and ensure dovetailing of plans and procedures thereby providing a co-ordinated and integrated response to emergency incidents.
Operational - The Council provides a 24-hour, 365 day response to major incidents.
