My Community

Be better prepared for risks

If you've made it here you're probably already thinking about what you could do either yourself or with others to help your community be better prepared for risks like flooding and severe weather.

There are lots of easy ways you can do this, either by supporting some of the work already happening in your area or by looking to establish something new, such as a Community Emergency Plan.

This isn't about doing the job of the emergency services. It's about supporting your community and those in it by making sensible preparations and using the skills and knowledge that the community has.

WHY should my community have an emergency plan?

We'll tell you why it makes sense to you and your community to have a plan

HOW do I get started - it sounds like a great idea!

We'll give you all the information you need to start your plan here

DO - what tools do I need to be able to write my emergency plan?

We'll direct you to the right tools and guidance to help you write, use and practise your plan here
