A whole host of events can affect a community. Depending on the scale of the event, it can be some time before outside help arrives.

A Community Emergency Plan (CEP) combines local knowledge and forward planning to:

  •   Help the community help itself before outside assistance arrives
  •  Help the community work effectively with emergency responders

Developing a CEP will help keep disruption to a minimum, safeguard the most vulnerable and speed a return to normality.  You can find a copy of the Community Emergency Plan template in the downloads section.
