Emergency Planning

Emergency Planning is part of the Environmental Health and Public Protection team at Torridge District Council, and is responsible for preparing and maintaining emergency plans, and assisting the Emergency Services to deal with major emergencies.

When responding to a major emergency Torridge District Council's role is to support the Emergency Services,  co-ordinate the Council's response, ensure local services continue to be provided, and help or lead in returning the Community to a state of normality.

Torridge District Council works closely with the Emergency Services (Police, Fire and Rescue Service and Ambulance), Devon County Council and other organisations as appropriate.
