Emergency Planning Appeal

Get involved in Emergency Planning

We’ve seen first hand recently how much damage can be caused in an emergency.

It is the Northamptonshire County Council’s Emergency Planning team’s job to make sure that Northamptonshire is as prepared as it can be for extreme weather, an accident, or other circumstances that might put us at risk.

Resources on the ground and community preparedness are vital to ensure that danger and lasting damage caused in an incident is minimised.

To do this, Northampton County Council needs your help.
