Community Councils have been encouraged to develop community resilience plans for emergency situations. A resilient community is an initiative supported by local, Scottish, and UK Governments.
The principle is that communities help themselves during an emergency in a way that complements, but in no way replaces, the response of the emergency responders. Emergencies can be severe weather, floods, fires, or major incidents involving transport, lengthy loss of utilities, etc. Community awareness and pre-planning will make it easier to cope with and recover from an emergency.
Our resilience plan is a work in progress.
