Emergency Planning - Introduction
Most of us will never experience a major incident or emergency situation during our lifetime. It is however an unfortunate fact of life that emergencies and disasters do occur. These often unpredictable and tragic events have various effects on our society and the environment in which we live and work.
It is to contain and minimise these events and their effects that the local authority and emergency services make plans for dealing with emergencies.
The information within the following pages will provide helpful advice and guidance on;
- What you can do if you are involved in an emergency
- Who you can contact
- What the council and emergency services will be doing during an emergency
- Preparing your business for an emergency
- Planning a safe event
