What is emergency planning and who is responsible?
Surrey County Council work to ensure that if a major Incident occurs in the county, the people of Surrey are protected and essential services are restored as quickly as possible, as required by the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. This work involves emergency planning as well as business continuity.
Surrey County Council works with different partners in a local resilience forum to ensure that plans are in place. Partners include emergency services, district and borough councils, health partners as well as voluntary and private organisations. Surrey Heath borough council is one of these partners.
