Essex Resilience Forum

Welcome to the home of The Essex Resilience Forum

Helping create a safer & more resilient future.

Essex is a safe place to live and work.  However, there are a number of hazards and risks that could impact our County.  The Essex Resilience Forum wants to make sure that if a large scale emergency does affect us, we are ready to respond and working together to minimise any impact.

This website has been designed to inform you about the work of the Essex Resilience Forum, which is a partnership of the organisations who respond to emergencies, and to provide you with information which will enable you to prepare yourself, your family, your community or your business to cope with an emergency.
