In our ever-changing world, emergency incidents can happen at any time and their cause can range from human error, to extreme acts of nature. In Emergency Planning, our aim is to reduce the chances of these emergencies occurring and if they do occur reducing their impact to a minimum: while helping those affected to our fullest capability.
The Civil Contingencies Act 2004 guides emergency planning procedures. This is a statutory framework established to guide civil protection and community resilience at a local level. The act splits responders into Category 1 and Category 2 responders.
As a Category 1 responder, Brentwood Borough Council has a statutory duty to write, maintain and exercise emergency plans. These plans cover a wide-range of potential scenarios and are created either specifically for Brentwood, or as part of the wider Essex multi-agency response.
Are day-to-day activities include:
- Conducting Risk & Hazard assessments
- Creating and maintaining Emergency Plans
- Providing advice
- Warning and informing activities
- Testing and exercising and reviewing plans
