How to get started

Community resilience measures can be as little as designating a point of contact in the parish to receive warnings and messages from emergency services and local authorities. The plan can grow over time to include areas such as:

  • An emergency team.
  • Community buildings which can be used as emergency evacuation facilities.
  • Knowledge of skills and expertise in the community.
  • Knowledge of special equipment or vehicles in the community.
  • Identification of vulnerable premises and people in the local area.
  • Specific actions based on specific risks.
