Emergency planning

Cheshire East is a safe place to live and work, where major emergencies occur very rarely. However, when they do, they may require a combined response from the responding agencies in Cheshire East.

Consequently, the Council, the emergency services and many other agencies have worked closely to develop emergency response arrangements for any incidents that may arise. We develop flexible plans through a process called Integrated Emergency Management, which enables all responding organisations to deal effectively with a major or serious incident at any time of day or night, 365 days a year. These plans are also exercised on a regular basis.
