What Do We Mean By Resilience

Community Resilience is defined by the Scottish Government as:

“Communities and individuals harnessing resources and expertise to help themselves prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, in a way that complements the work of the emergency responders.”

Some examples of emergencies:

  • Severe weather;
  • Floods;
  • Extended loss of utilities;
  • Fires;
  • Major incidents involving transport.

Community awareness and pre-planning will make it easier to respond to and recover from an emergency. The purpose of a Community Resilience Plan is to:-

  • Identify and consider key local risks;
  • Identify activation and communication arrangements;
  • Identify local venues for community emergency hubs;
  • Maintain a database of contact details for key holders for these venues;
  • Maintain a database of volunteers and contact details;
  • Establish liaison roles and methods to/from emergency responders.

It will take the team time to prepare its Community Resilience Plan however once it is ready it will be available through this web site.

Our target is to have the first edition issued in preparedness for Winter 2016.
