Although severe emergencies, such as flooding, power outages, extreme weather and terror attacks are rare, it is important to have plans in place setting out how to deal with the situations if they do happen.

See the icon Guildford Borough Council Emergency Plan, [3.84MB] which sets out the procedures for dealing with an emergency in our borough.

How you can help

Having a household emergency plan in place to help you and your family can be useful if an emergency arises.

We also want to help residents, community groups and businesses work together to draw up an emergency plan for their area.

Forming a Community Resilience Group, writing an emergency plan and practising carrying it out, can help build a strong and supportive community. If you're interested in setting up a group, or already have a group and want to create an emergency plan, please email info@appliedresilience.org. Take a look at our Community group action page for more information.
