Role of the Local Authority

The main function of the Local Authority during the initial stages of an incident is to maintain the normal council services whilst still providing support to the emergency services.The Local Authority will first become involved in an incident when they are alerted by the initiating emergency service, and as the incident develops and moves in the recovery stage the Local Authority will begin to take the lead role from the emergency services.
