Emergency planning

We work to ensure that if an incident happens in the county, the people of Surrey are prepared and essential services are restored as quickly as possible.

Emergency planning is at the heart of the civil protection duty placed on local authorities, the emergency services and other Category 1 responders. Under this duty, local authorities are required to maintain plans for preventing and preparing for incidents, including reducing, controlling or mitigating the effects of incidents.
