Community Resilence contact form


Derbyshire County Council wish to work closely with town and parish councils on effective community response planning. In many emergencies the community want to help in the response to assist their friends and neighbours. This can take many forms eg organising volunteers, checking vulnerable people, obtaining key supplies for people or simply as a communication link with statutory agencies. Some communities want to prepare a full Response Plan and others simply want to provide contact points. Any involvement of communities is helpful in an emergency.

The full Plan can be provided by DCC if necessary.
