Community Resilience in North Lincolnshire

The North Lincolnshire Council Emergency Planning Team are part of the Humber Emergency Planning Service which provides the Emergency Planning (including Community Resilience) provision for the four Humber bank local authorities.

During a major wide area emergency it may be some time before responding organisations are able to offer assistance. By planning in advance, your Town or Parish Council could help coordinate local response activities.

Creating a Community Emergency Plan (CEP) will identify local resources available and sets out a structure to follow in the response to an incident such as severe weather or flooding that might isolate the community.

We have produced a pack to help Town and Parish Councils write their Community Emergency Plan which contains the following:

  • Guidance
  • Plan templates
  • Training DVD
  • Supporting template documents
  • Exercising guidance
  • Reviewing guidance

All these documents and further information can be found on the Humber Emergency Planning Service website – town and parish councils.

Smaller scale plans

If your Town/Parish Council has decided not to write a plan, you can still do something as a smaller group.  Following consultation with some communities, it was felt that a plan on a smaller scale would be more suitable. Therefore we have produced a template aimed at Neighbourhood Watch groups and smaller groups that could also help you in an emergency. This document and further information can be found on the Humber Emergency Planning Service website – Neighbourhood plans.
