Join us for a workshop on Creating a Community Emergency Plan at Magelake Parish Pavillion; an opportunity to make a difference in your community!

A Community Emergency Plan (CEP) identifies 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 a community.

This two-hour introduction to creating your emergency plan will be led by Devon Community Resilience Forum and cover:

  • The importance of having a plan
  • Identifying risks
  • Format of a plan
  • Outline of legal framework

Interested in volunteering to help create a plan in your community? Come along to find out more about how you can be involved. The event is free - all welcome. Light refreshments will be provided.

Devon Community Resilience Forum is a partnership between Devon Communities Together, Devon County Council, and the Environment Agency. It encourages communities to help themselves and to prepare a local plan, alongside supporting running twice yearly forum events to help increase your local resilience and network with other communities (the spring/summer event will be in-person and the winter event online) and quarterly newsletters.
