Parish Emergency Planning

Parish Emergency Planning

What would your community do if the emergency services could not get to you immediately?

For best practise a Parish Emergency Plan should be in place for your community.

A Parish Emergency Plan

  • Reassures your community and gives confidence to your parish
  • Allows organisation and co-ordination of a community response to an emergency
  • Provides your community, emergency services and local authority with a local point of contact and assistance
  • Helps to keep your community informed so people know what to do and are able to respond, especially in the first critical hours following an incident
  • Helps those that are vulnerable by providing care, support, and information or practical help.
  • Represents the community and assist with community recovery


We have created a Emergency Plan Template and an Emergency Planning Guidance Document to be used alongside the template:
