Developing community resilience with Birmingham City council emergency planning team. Working with resilience champions in schools and community groups to build a more prepared and resilient society for everyone.Community Resilience is about communities using local resources and knowledge to help themselves during an emergency in a way that complements the local emergency services.
Your community will be better prepared to cope during and after an emergency when everyone works together using their local knowledge. Things like understanding what requirements most-at-need groups may have in an emergency can make a real difference. Identifying and planning for the risks you may encounter during a severe flood, heat-wave or snowfall could help in reducing the potential impact on you, your family and the wider community.
The Bidgley Power Foundation has a trained and active Birmingham emergency Support Officer who currently works on these plans for the city council as well as working with the community.
