  • Flooding

    The physical devastation that accompanies a flood is enormous. It is important to remember we must at all times be prepared to respond to the risk of flooding.


  • Keep warm in the winter

    Keeping warm is a vital part of keeping well in the winter particularly for older people, the young and those with chronic illness.

    Severe weather always has the potential to significantly disrupt our daily lives. Snow, floods, gales, dense fog and widespread ice all bring their own unique problems.

The main effect of the Order is to ensure a move towards greater emphasis on fire prevention in all non-domestic premises, including the voluntary sector and self-employed people with premises separate from their homes.


  • First Responders

    The aim is to provide rapid medical assistance to people with life threatening conditions situated in rural areas, where a normal ambulance may take some time to reach.
