Emergency Planning

Our team work to ensure that communities, businesses and public services are jointly prepared to respond immediately in any emergency and return to "business as usual" afterwards.

What do we do?

In incidents such as major transport accidents, severe weather conditions, industrial accidents, fire, epidemics or terrorist activities Dudley Council is committed to plan with partners to respond to emergencies, provide local communities with information relating to emergencies and practical help as appropriate.  Dudley Council will participate in the response to any incident to support the emergency services in providing prompt assistance to communities where we are able to do so; coordinate the process of rebuilding, restoring and rehabilitating communities following an emergency; ensure that we have robust business continuity plans in place so that we can continue to deliver critical services during business interruptions and provide support and advice to the local business community regarding business continuity.
