Description

Welcome to the 3rd annual Resilient Communities Conference.

We'd like to invite all community groups, town and parish councils, individuals and voluntary organisations who want to make a difference in times of crisis.

The conference will be held at the British Red Cross in Grantham and is themed around making our communities more resilient. We will look at what we do can to protect ourselves and those around us in in times of crisis until the emergency services arrive and, then once they have, what we can do to enhance their response.

This is a great opportunity for you to meet like-minded people and for you to have a real say in how community resilience is shaped in Lincolnshire.

We realise how important the community is in a crisis situation, so we want to join together to protect what is important to you, your neighbours and your environment.

Doors open at 09:30hrs for coffee and registration with the conference being officially opened at 10:00hrs.

  • The morning session will look at understanding our communities and the practical steps we can take to identify emergencies before they happen.
  • During the lunch break you will be able to learn simple life-saving CPR skills whilst enjoying the buffet and networking with like-minded people.
  • In the afternoon we will cover how you can open up and manage a place of safety – based on lessons learned from within the county and from other incidents, such as Grenfell.

I do hope to see you there.

Emergency Planning Officer
