How we plan for emergencies
We are responsible for risk assessing and helping people plan for different emergencies, and supporting the public if an emergency affects the area.
Emergencies can include dangerous or highly disruptive events such as:
- severe weather
We work closely with partners to prepare for these events. You can find out more on the following websites:
We've also assessed the specific risks to our area with the Kent Resilience Forum. This has been brought together into the Kent Community Risk Register.
Our role in an emergency
We're known as a 'category one responder'. This means we have key responsibilities; including providing advice and assistance to the public and sharing information with other partners.
