The Council has Emergency Plans in place to enabling us to respond or react to any major incident.
The Council will play a key role in alleviating the effects of an emergency on the community and the environment and restoring normality as quickly as possible by:
- Liaison with the emergency services and supporting organisations;
- The involvement, either directly or indirectly, of appropriate personnel;
- Handling the large number of enquiries likely to be generated both from the public and the media;
- Working closely with the emergency services, Staffordshire County Council, voluntary organisations, private industry and other organisations responding to an incident, to ensure that there is an efficient and coordinated response.
