Welcome to Lincolnshire Resilience Forum
We plan and prepare for local incidents and major emergencies. We identify the risks to Lincolnshire, and produce emergency plans to mitigate them and protect our local communities.
The LRF is a multi-agency partnership made up of representatives from local public services, including the emergency services, local authorities, and others. These agencies are known as Category 1 Responders.
The LRF itself is a statutory process made up of many different statutory bodies.
This partnership is supported by Category 2 responders. They have a responsibility to co-operate and to share relevant information with the LRF. These responders include the Highways Agency, Public Utilities, and others.
Responders can vary from the British Red Cross, to the MoD, to Drainage Boards.
In an incident, everyone comes together to help the people of Lincolnshire by responding in a way that minimises the impact on the public, property, and environment of Lincolnshire.
A bit more about us…
Where do we cover?
Under the Civil Contingencies Act, every part of the United Kingdom is required to establish a resilience forum.
Lincolnshire LRF covers the Lincolnshire Police Force Area. This covers 2,292 square miles, and a population of over 750,000.
All LRF responders work to a set of common objectives:
- Prevent a disaster getting worse
- Save lives
- Relieve suffering
- Restore normality ASAP
- Protect Property
- Facilitate criminal investigations/judicial process if necessary
What do we cover?
As well as dealing with the aftermath of an emergency, partners within the LRF work together to ensure that plans and preparations are in place and regularly tested for a variety of incident types.
This ensures all partners can respond immediately and effectively.
