Key agencies across Devon: the Police, Fire Service, Environment Agency, Devon County Council, District Councils, have come together to form a Devon Community Resilience Board (DCRB).

Their aim is to work with communities and individuals to harness local resources and expertise, to help plan how to respond to any sort of emergency.

Devon Communities Together and the Devon Association of Local Councils have been asked to join the DCRB because of our wide experience of working with local communities and helping develop other forms of local plans (Parish Plans, Community Plans, Neighbourhood Plans).Devon Communities Together are delighted to be joining the DCRB, and supporting communities to create Emergency Plans.

We are looking forward to setting up a Devon Community Resilience Forum which will bring together community representatives and practitioners to consider the key issues.

CEO Elaine Cook and Director of Operations, Greg Davies will be presenting on this subject and codesign at the Devon Strategic Partnership Conference, Goldfish Bowl, #dspcong on Friday 18th June. 

You can also come and meet the experts at the official launch of the Forum at our Rural Futures Conference on 1st October 2015 - Book here.

There will be more information on our website over the summer including news of an exciting Forum event to look out for later in the year.
