North Wales: Preparing for emergencies

As part of the work of preparing for emergencies across the region, key partners work together to prepare the North Wales Community Risk Register.

This document provides information on the biggest emergencies that could happen in the region and includes the impact on people, communities, the environment and local businesses. These risks are regularly reviewed and listed on the regional Risk Register.

The Risk Register is compiled by the North Wales Resilience Forum which is made up of representatives of the main agencies involved in responding to emergencies – the emergency services, local authorities, health, environment and utility organisations.

The overall purpose is to ensure representatives work together to achieve an appropriate level of preparedness to respond to emergencies that may have a significant impact on the communities of North Wales.
