Working to Make Surrey Prepared

Rate this item
(2 votes)

Would you like to help your home and the community you live in be prepared for anything, from flooding to very cold weather? A new initiative, Surrey Prepared, aims to help people in Surrey do just that by providing the information and resources they need to help make their communities stronger and more resilient.

Unfortunately major incidents can and do happen in Surrey – just two and a half years ago the county experienced such severe flooding that the army was called in to provide support. We’ve seen that communities who come together during incidents are better off, whether from how they dealt with the outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease to the way communities respond to large fires.

Surrey County Council has worked with its partners to launch the Surrey Community Resilience Partnership. The partnership will help communities build resilience and protect homes under the Surrey Prepared initiative, with everything from advice on developing a community emergency plan to training, resources to help you prepare for major incidents and even help with getting funding to help make your community more resilient. The aim is to support households and communities to prepare in advance of any incident so they are safer and better informed, as well as encouraging stronger communities all year round.
