In 2008 Government published, for the first time, a National Risk Register. This was the first step in providing advice on how people and businesses can better prepare for civil emergencies.
The January 2012 update to this document; the National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies – January 2012 edition updates the public on the Government’s current assessment of the likelihood and potential impact of a range of different civil emergency risks ( including naturally and accidently occurring hazards and malicious threats) that may directly affect the UK. It also provides information on how the UK and emergency services prepare for these emergencies.
