Emergency planning

As a local authority, we have certain duties placed upon us by the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. This means we must prepare for, respond to and recover from major civil emergencies, as well as promote resilience in the business sector by offering business continuity advice.

With the support of the Lincolnshire County Council's Emergency Planning and Business Continuity team, we offer support and advice around the identified risks to the communities of Lincolnshire. Visit Lincolnshire County Council website for emergency advice (opens new window).

We're also a member of the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum (opens new window), which provides a joined-up response with the emergency services.

Understanding emergency planning 

Emergency planning in Lincolnshire is carried out by Lincolnshire County Council's Emergency Planning and Business Continuity team.

Business continuity planning

Business continuity is about planning to ensure that your business can return to 'business as usual' as quickly, and as painlessly, as possible in the event of a disruption. For more information, please call 01775 761161.
