The community emergency plan was designed as a simple tool to assist our community to undertake a coordinated response to a major emergency incident within the Parish pending, and in conjunction with, support from the emergency services and other responding agencies. It aims to help minimise disruption arising from an incident and expediting a return to ‘normal’ – as far as is possible – without undue delay. It is not designed to cover every possible eventuality; in almost every emergency situation the experience, initiative and commitment of individuals involved will have an influence on the outcome. Perceived risks, resources and contacts etc, specific to Buxted, are shown in the relevant appendices to this plan.
The information below gives a sense of the contents of the plan but the complete document can be downloaded (with the exception of the restricted appendices) here Emergency Plan.
This Emergency Plan was produced by George Claydon, Parish Volunteer Emergency Planning Officer, on behalf of Buxted Parish Council, January 2009.
