An emergency could be anything from severe weather, flooding or fire to a major incident involving transport. Preparing your community for these kinds of events will make it easier to recover following the impact of an emergency. The more that we as individuals and communities can do to prepare ourselves the more effectively the emergency services can direct their resources
We have put this information together to explain the reasons why it is a good idea to prepare a community emergency plan, and to help you find out the roles and responsibilities of the council and other emergency responders.
