Emergency Planning

Boston Borough Council has the responsibility to plan and prepare for potential emergencies in the borough. It also has a duty to promote best practices to small and medium-sized businesses, encouraging them to think about what they would do in a crisis to ensure their business survives the impacts.

Boston Borough Council under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, has the responsibility to perform certain duties to prepare for, respond to and recover from major emergencies.

Emergency Planning - What is it?

Emergency planning describes the processes of a responding agency (also known as a category 1 responder), its managers and personnel who manage an emergency.  In Lincolnshire this task is carried out by the Lincolnshire County Council Emergency Planning and Business Continuity Service but supported and resourced by all seven districts throughout the county.

Together we offer advice and guidance to all communities in the borough around identified risks
