Local councils around the country have started to create community emergency plans. This is because it is felt each community is often better able than outsiders to support its residents in local emergencies. Although emergency services would be fully involved, it is sometimes easier to focus in the right places for local people to help themselves, at least initially.
The Parish Council has published a plan for possible emergencies. We want to share the details with residents as widely as possible so you know how and where to find out about it and what we, as a community, can do to help each other.
The Plan is based on guidance from the Kent Resilience Forum and Tunbridge Wells Borough Council but it focuses specifically on our Parish.
