Workshops will equip Cornish public with emergency skills
A SERIES of workshops is being staged across Cornwall over the next few weeks aimed at providing members of the public with the knowledge and skills to deal with emergencies in their local communities.
Cornwall Council has joined with the Environment Agency to put on the Community Emergency Plan Workshops, across Cornwall during October and November aimed at providing members of the public with the knowledge and skills to deal with emergencies in their local communities.
“A community emergency can range from a fire affecting a home or business and a major flood or pollution incident, to dealing with the disruption caused by heavy snow and ice or a heat wave, or a major traffic collision“ said Tony Garvin, emergency management officer from Cornwall Council.
“These meetings will give people the chance to meet some of staff from the Council and Environment Agency who deal with the effects of emergencies within towns and villages and discuss how their local area could benefit from the creation of a Community Emergency Plan”.
