About the Essex Resilience Forum
Large-scale emergencies can lead to millions of pounds of damage and misery for many people, but we can plan to minimise the impact that they have.
The Essex Resilience Forum is a multi-agency partnership, made up of local councils, emergency services, health providers, the voluntary sector and many more organisations - working together to plan and prepare for a multi-agency response to a major emergency.
The reason this partnership exists and we plan for these large scale emergencies is due to the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, which came into effect in order to ensure that the UK is better prepared to cope with the risks that we face.
