Emergencies cover a range of situations, including events such as transport accidents or terrorist attacks, ‘slow-burn’ events such as Foot & Mouth or the fuel crisis, and ‘anticipated’ events which can be planned for, eg industrial accidents, flooding, etc. Responding to emergencies is usually the task of a number of agencies, including local authorities, and will in most instances be led by the Police or one of the other emergency services.

As well as the 'Don't be scared, be well prepared' leaflet (above) we have a Household Emergency Plan template. This has been produced in conjuction with the Local Resilience Forum to enable households to plan for and cope with an emergency situation.
