Community Risk Register

Essex’s Resilience Forum produces a Community Risk Register to look at the likelihood and impact of a range of hazards occurring in Essex.

Every Resilience Forum uses its own professional judgement along with guidance from the national version of this document (National Risk Register), to put together its Community Risk Register.  The national register is produced by the Government using historical and scientific data, and the professional judgements of experts to analyse the risks to the UK as a whole.

Essex’s Community Risk Register helps identify the emergency issues and also situations where a risk may be increasing or decreasing in our County.  It helps highlight any gaps in organisations' ability to respond to an emergency and indicates what response is required.  If a risk is included in the Community Risk Register, it does not mean it will happen.  It means that we know it is a possibility (however remote), and organisations have individually or jointly made arrangements to reduce its impact.

A copy of the Community Risk Register Public Information can be downloaded from the Know The Risks page.

The full version of the Essex Community Risk Register is a restricted document, a redacted version is able to be downloaded below.
