SLDC emergency planning

In a major emergency all the agencies work together to save and protect life. 

We focus on these areas of response:

  • attend the strategic emergency control centre: who make decisions on priorities
  • run our operational control centre
  • run reception centres to shelter the public, usually in a secondary school
  • make sandbags available
  • provide accommodation for people who have become homeless
  • provide information online and over the phone
  • advise on human and animal disease outbreaks
  • advise on food safety (for example, food contaminations)
  • advise on dangerous structures
  • provide health and safety advice
