Emergency planning

We are a Category One responder, as defined in the Civil Contingencies Act 2004.

The Civil Contingencies Act 2004 defines an emergency/major incident as 'an event or situation which threatens serious damage to human welfare in a place in the UK, the environment of a place in the UK, or war or terrorism which threatens serious damage to the security of the UK'.

As part of our work, we work closely with Staffordshire's Civil Contingencies Unit, the emergency services, other local authorities, health authorities and various organisations to prepare for and assist in emergencies.
