Introduction

This plan is designed to be a simple tool to enable our community to commence a response to an emergency within our Parish pending support from the emergency services.

 

Aim

To form a first point of contact as well as a framework of contacts.

 

Operational tasks

  • Identify and report the incident to Sussex Police Headquarters at the first opportunity
  • Establish contact with Rother District Council to ensure a communications link can be maintained
  • Assemble as many members of the community who may be able to assist
  • Identify the situation of the vulnerable members of the community
  • Provide a team of volunteers who are willing to undertake tasks allocated during the emergency
