Parish Emergency Planning

Parish emergency planning

In case the emergency services couldn't get to you immediately, 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
