Has your community suffered from flooding, extreme weather, fire or any kind of emergency?
Are you worried about how your community might cope if it did?
Come along to our Emergency Planning Information Event
Date and time: Tuesday 21 November 9.30am – 12.30pm
Location: Main Hall, Priory Street Centre, 15 Priory Street, York YO1 6ET
Why do you need an emergency plan?
Emergency Plans can cover anything from designating a community building as a refuge centre, recruiting volunteers to check on vulnerable residents or identifying the owners of useful vehicles. They equip community leaders to organise an effective response to an emergency, and help local residents to understand what they need to do should the worst happen.
We are working with North Yorkshire County Council’s Community Resilience Team to help rural communities across the county put vital Emergency Plans in place.
At our Emergency Planning Information Event you will:
Find out more about what is involved in creating a Community Emergency Plan
Hear about the expert support that is available to help you
Learn from communities who have gone through the process themselves.
There will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you have, and we will be updating you on our work to help individual households put their own Emergency Plans together.
Who should attend?
Community leaders and parish council members.
The event is completely free and light refreshments will be included. To help us with catering arrangements, please book a place online here , email our Emergency Planning Officer, James Russell, or call 01904 704 177.
