Get Involved

How to get involved

Your involvement can help bolster your community

Why be prepared?

Resilient communities can play a large part in preserving life, alongside the activities undertaken by the LRF.

Simple community-based plans can identify local risks, key community contacts, and essential resources in for an area in times of crisis.

The community emergency plan and you

A good plan provides a basic framework for the community to build on when planning an emergency response. If an emergency is widespread, it can take some time for emergency services to reach further-out and rural communities.

Having a plan in place helps a community to tide itself over, and protect its resident until further help arrives.

Working together saves lives, livelihoods, and the community environment as a result.

Communities come together naturally during a crisis. However having a central co-ordinated point can be the difference between an effective response and an ineffectual one.

Lincolnshire’s Resilient Communities programme has developed a helpful template to help guide this process – just take a look below.
