Keeping in touch

Step 6

STEP 6 - Keeping in touch

You will need reliable communications in an emergency.  You may need to pass on warnings, or assist in keeping people informed of the situation.

The Community Emergency Plan Template will help you to record the names and contact details for the key people and resources that will assist you with emergency response. 

Think about how you will communicate if telephones don’t work too.  Look at the Community Emergency Plan Guidance for ideas.

The Roles and Responsibilities Guide and the Emergency Telephone Directory will help you to find out which organisations do what in an emergency and how to contact them.
