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.

Please see DCIS prepared >>


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.
