Ilfracombe Emergency Plan
Nearly all emergencies affecting communities will be dealt with routinely by an integrated multi-agency response, however, a situation could occur (such as extensive flooding, storm damage, deep snow, power outage or major incident), which could delay the arrival of outside assistance due to services being overwhelmed, when our community will need to help itself.
An Emergency Management Team has been set up by the Parish to write a plan on behalf of the community. Emergency Planning is about ensuring that strategies are put in place to mitigate the effects of an incident. There is no way of knowing if, when, or under what circumstances we will need to have a community plan but we feel confident that you will be willing to assist us in identifying local skills and initiatives to assist in the development of a simple, self-help plan.
Remember no matter how small you feel your personal assistance is it will be valued as part of the whole, and, donít forget, it may be you that needs help!
