The Norfolk Community Risk Register (CRR) helps identify hazards that may lead to an emergency. We have a legal duty (under the Civil Contingency Act) to produce a register of risks that may impact on the county. This helps us to focus our planning arrangements to mitigate these risks.
If a risk is included in the CRR, it doesn’t mean it will happen. It means we know it is a possibility, and organisations need to have made arrangements to reduce its impact. Risk are rated as either Very High (Red), High (Amber), Medium (Yellow) and Green (Low).
Here is a snapshot of our Community Risk Register matrix so you can see the kinds of risks that we could face in Norfolk. If you would like to download a copy, then follow this link: Community Risk Register matrix.
We have produced a series of information leaflets to help you ‘Know the risks, Be informed and Get prepared’.
