Community emergency planning is important because:
- Our emergency services will always have to prioritise people in greatest need during an emergency, especially where life is in danger.
- Individuals and communities may need to rely on their own resources to ensure they are able to cope and to minimise the impact of an emergency.
- Experience has shown that those who have spent time planning and preparing for this are better able to cope, and recover more quickly.
- Community emergency planning enables groups to provide more effective support. It also provides information to responding agencies (emergency services, local authority etc.) in coordinating the response on a wider scale.
