Preparing for an emergency - Sussex Resilience Forum
Local resilience forums bring together emergency services, councils, utilities and other essential public and voluntary services to work in partnership to support the local community during incidents and emergencies.
Through the Sussex Resilience Forum (SRF), organisations work together to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies. The SRF is responsible for coordinating and testing emergency plans and procedures so that member organisations are prepared to meet their duties specified under the Civil Contingencies Act.
During an incident or emergency, members of the resilience forum work together to support the organisation/s that are leading the response.
The Sussex Resilience Forum is hosted on behalf of all partners by Sussex Police.

Being prepared means you are better able to respond to an emergency
All local resilience forums are required to publish a community risk register, setting out the most relevant risks in their area, the plans in place to manage them, and what local communities can do to be prepared for emergencies.
The Community Risk Register for Sussex (CRR) is a collection of local risk assessments, rated in terms of their potential impact and likelihood of occurring, owned and maintained by the SRF.
The CRR is the first step in the emergency planning process it ensures planned responses are proportionate to the risk, and that communities can be prepared.
