Silverdale Community Emergency Plan

The Cabinet Office defines a major emergency as:

“Any event or circumstance (happening with or without warning) that causes or threatens death or injury, disruption to the community, or damage to property or to the environment on such a scale that the effects cannot be dealt with by the Emergency Services, local authorities and other organisations as part of their normal day-to-day activities.”

This document is intended to provide guidance to you of what to do in the unlikely event of such a major event occurring in the village area. Printed copies may be found in the Silverdale Library, The Gaskell Hall, The Village Institute and St John’s Church.
