Community resilience

Your community may have a plan in place which can be activated in times of crisis? Would you like to get involved with your local community emergency plan?

To find out more and to see if your community has a plan in place, or is going through the development stages please take a look at the map below. If no plan exists in your community (shown in white on the map) why not start one? Community Emergency Plan templates are available to download free by clicking on this link

Community emergency planning is not about leaving you to your own devices until the emergency services arrive; or providing a service to the community instead of an emergency response. It's about enhancing what we are all trying to do in the first place by saving and preserving life. It's about giving people the right information at the right time so they can make choices based on this information. Community resilience is about communication, talking to each other, being a good neighbour and then sharing this with the emergency services and local authority so the community can recover more quickly from an emergency.

If your would like to be put in touch with your local community team please email and if you are a plan owner please don't forget to send in your updated version to Emergency Planning because if we don't know you have one, we can't support you!
