What is Emergency Planning?
This is simply the name given to the work the council does to be ready to help the emergency services deal with major emergencies that affect our communities. We also plan how we will help communities to recover from emergencies and get back to normal.
We regularly work with our emergency service partners to plan for a wide range of emergencies and we test our plans during exercises to make sure we are as well prepared as we need to be.
During an emergency, we help by setting up Rest Centres, by sending Liaison Officers to the scene to provide expert knowledge, for example if a building is in danger of collapse and by coordinating this through our own Control Centre.
