Emergency Planning

The Emergency Planning Shared Service's aims are preparing, maintaining and co-ordinating a robust and effective response to emergencies.

We work with the emergency services and other responders to make sure Rotherham is fully prepared for every eventuality as part of the South Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum. We write plans on how the Council would response to emergencies and incidents.

We also train and exercise with partners to ensure we are prepared and the plans we write work. As well as planning for emergencies we also have to ensure that the Council can continue to deliver its key services during an incident, no matter how large or small. This is called Business Continuity Planning.
