Topic outline

  • General

    Welcome to Humber Emergency Planning Service learning space - a dedicated learning space for town and parish councils within the Humber region.

    Introduction

    The learning space is broken down into four areas. The first provides access to the e-learning module explaining why it's a great idea to have a Community Emergency Plan as well as walking you through what's included in the three different level templates we have.

    The next two areas provide access to modules looking at specific aspects of implementing the Community Emergency Plan. It includes a module about how to run an incident room and another which explains best practice for running an emergency shelter during an incident.

    In the final area you can find a module looking at how to run an exercise to test that your Community Emergency Plan is fit for purpose.

    More modules looking at other aspects of community emergency planning will be added in the future.
