Devon Community Resilience Forum

1st April 2018 - 31st March 2020

THE DEVON COMMUNITY RESILIENCE FORUM:

The Devon Community Resilience Forum supports communities to develop their community emergency plan; a document that guides community response in an emergency and helps communities to prepare. Community emergency plans are also uploaded to a secure website where they can be viewed by the emergency services, if there is an emergency in your community they will be able to view your plan and understand how the community may already be responding, where there is high risk, and what resources the community has.

Read the January 2019 Community Resilience Forum Newsletter here.

Come along to our next Community Resilience Forum for town and parish councillors, community response team members, flood wardens, and anyone else involved in the creation and support of a community emergency plan in Devon. The full programme is coming soon, book now to secure your free place.

A Community Reserve Volunteer is anyone who wants to help their local community if a large incident should occur, but is perhaps unable to commit to regular volunteering. No specialist skills are required and the volunteers can decide whether to respond to an incident on a case-by-case basis.
