Broadmayne’s Emergency Plan

Emergencies can happen at any time and it is vitally important that we have a framework in place to mitigate the potential impacts of threats to our village residents and environment.

The Broadmayne Community Emergency Plan has been relaunched (Spring 2019) following a review and update to incorporate latest best practice.

In the plan you will find the defined procedures with which the community will handle emergencies, lists of volunteer helpers, emergency facilities, etc..

In an emergency you should contact our volunteer Community Emergency Response Coordinator – Kevin Denham Tel: 01305 854483 or 07810 658310 or failing that a member of the Emergency Response Team – the details you need are in the plan, why not make a note of them?
