Our Response in an Emergency

If there is likely to be an emergency situation, the Council will liaise with all relevant agencies and emergency response services so that action is coordinated.

If You are Affected

If you or your property is likely to be directly affected by an emergency situation, you will be contacted by one of the emergency services and given advice what to do, including where to go if you need to leave your home.

How to Get Information in an Emergency

We will provide real-time information through social media and will update this website with information about the situation. We will keep media services informed. If there is a major emergency, local and national radio and TV companies will interrupt their programming to give public safety advice.

The Essex Resilience Forum is also a good on line tool to help prepare for emergencies.
