Community Emergency Planning

CALC can support Town and Parish Councils to be involved with, or lead on, Community Emergency Planning in their area.

There are guidance information sheets and templates available here to support you to create a Community Emergency Plan.

Many communities have informal plans/procedures that are used in the case of an emergency or an event, based on local knowledge and experience.  

By capturing this valuable information within a more 'formal' community emergency plan, this local knowledge can be made available to Category 1 and 2 responders and Cumbria Local Resilience Forum Partners. Cumbria Resilience Forum | Cumberland Council and Westmorland and Furness Council (

There are various training and events in relation to Community Emergency Planning throughout the year.
