Community Risk Register (CRR)

Assessment of the risks we face is an integral part of and the first step in, the emergency planning process.
The Tayside Community Risk Register (CRR) is a dynamic document that details the risks within Tayside. A risk, for the purpose of the CRR is one that can lead to an emergency.
The CRR is produced by a local multi-agency group working within the emergency planning arena. Assessment is carried out locally as local responders will have a more realistic understanding of the hazards and threats for which they should be prepared within their own geographic areas.
The CRR directs our emergency planning and business continuity arrangements including planning, preparation, training and exercising and ensures that they are carried out in proportion to the risks/hazards identified.
The aims of the risk register are:
- to ensure that local responders have an accurate understanding of the risks that they face to provide a sound foundation for planning
- to provide a work programme and to ensure efficient allocation of resources to enable local responders to assess the adequacy of their plans and identify any gaps there may be
- to facilitate and encourage multi-agency working which ensures a more comprehensive planning process
- to provide an accessible overview of the emergency planning context for the public and other interested parties.
