Emergency Planning in Southend
What we would do in an emergency
If there is likely to be an emergency situation, we will talk to other agencies and the emergency services. This is to ensure that we work together to deal with the situation.
If you are affected
If you or your home is likely to be affected by an emergency, you will be contacted by the emergency services. They will give advice about what to do, including where to go if you need to leave your home.
How to get information in an emergency
We will provide up-to date information through social media and will update this website with what's happening. If there is a major emergency, local and national radio and TV will provide pubic safety advice updates.
The Essex Resilience Forum is also a good online tool with things to do to help you prepare.
