Community Resilience tools and templates

Emergencies happen. Your local emergency responders will always have to prioritise those in greatest needs during an emergency, especially where life is in danger. There will be times when you may be affected by an emergency but your life is not in immediate danger.


During this time, individuals and communities may need to rely on their own resources to ensure they are able to cope with the consequences of the emergency. Many communities already spontaneously help one another in times of need, but previous experience has shown that those who have spent time planning and preparing for this are better able to cope, and recover more quickly.


Find out whether your community has a Community Emergency Response Plan.

Dorset provides two documents for communities to assist them in taking their first steps in preparing a Community Emergency Response Plan.  A template plan is available below, together with a Getting Started guide.
