Emergency Planning

​Cheshire West and Chester Council plays a central role in the management of major emergencies that happen within the borough.

Why we plan for emergencies - the Civil Contingencies Act

Cheshire Resilience Forum

Emergency planning is the responsibility of a range of organisations in Cheshire West and Chester and the wider area.

These have teamed up to create a Local Resilience Forum which help co-ordination and co-operation between responders at the local level. More information is available on the Cheshire Local Resilience Forum website.
