Community resilience

Getting together with your local community to make an emergency plan is one of the most powerful ways you can minimise the impact of an emergency situation on your own household.

Your community could be your neighbours and those that live near you, or it could be a local club or organisation that you are part of, such as a sports club or religious group. Whoever your community is with, whatever you define as your community, you should ask yourself the following questions

  • Are you aware of the risks you and your community might face, for example
  • flooding?
  • How can you help yourself and those around you during an emergency?
  • What can you do to get involved in emergency planning in your community?
