Emergency Response Plan

East Langton Parish Council, in partnership with Harborough District Council and The Local Resilience Forum is working on an Emergency Response Plan for the Parish.

This plan is being written by East Langton Parish Council to interact with current procedures produced by the emergency services, local authority and other agencies involved in responding to an incident in our parish. Please see below for more information about the Emergency Response Plans.

The Parish Council has nearly completed this; however, the plan identifies people with the following skills and resources who would be prepared to help in the event of an emergency:

  • First Aid
  • Electricians
  • Plumbers
  • Tractor
  • 4X4 vehicle
  • Chainsaws
  • Catering Facilities
  • Heating Units
  • Transport

If you can help please contact Alison Gibson (Clerk ELPC) on 07763 177707 or email eastlangtonpc@gmail.com.

The plan provides a guide as to how and where the local community may support the Emergency services in terms of information and providing predetermined resources where appropriate. You can find out more information at this link - https://www.llrprepared.org.uk/prepared-communities/

All major emergencies are dealt with by the Emergency Services, Local Authorities, Utilities and Voluntary Agencies in a combined response. A Parish Council Emergency Plan can help the parish prepare for an emergency and minimise its impact should it affect their community. This would therefore increase the Parish and Community's resilience.

In extreme conditions such as heavy snow and flooding, there is a possibility that the emergency services may not be able to reach the scene immediately. In such circumstances, the initial response may rely entirely on local people.
