What is Community Emergency Planning?

When an emergency happens, there usually isn’t the time to stop and think. A Community Emergency Plan will give immediate access to the key telephone numbers, local information and action prompts that you will need to support your community in an emergency.

Why do we need a Community Emergency Plan?

Emergencies happen. Local emergency responders will always prioritise those in greatest need during an emergency, especially where life is in danger. But there could be times when you and your community are affected by an emergency but life is not in immediate danger and the emergency services are not able to help. During this time, you need to know how to help yourself and those around you.
