North Worcestershire Emergency Planning
Preparing for emergencies, are you ready?
It may not always be possible for communities to be reached immediately during an emergency such as flooding. The government suggest that communities could use local resources and knowledge to help themselves during an emergency in a way that complements the local emergency services.
How prepared is your community and what can you do?
- Are you aware of the risks you and your community might face? For example, flooding.
- How can you help yourself and those around you during an emergency?
- What can you do to get involved in emergency planning in your community?
Your community will be better prepared to cope during and after an emergency when everyone works together using their local knowledge. Things like understanding what requirements most-at-need groups may have in an emergency can make a real difference. Identifying and planning for the risks you may encounter during a severe flood, heat-wave or snowfall could help in reducing the potential impact on you, your family and the wider community.
Being prepared and able to respond to an emergency can often help people recover more quickly. This illustrates how successful community resilience can be and why many communities are already engaged in this planning.
