To enable each individual responder agency to meet their requirements, the following form our strategic objectives;
- Provide a forum for the consideration of emergency response issues where there are implications for more than one organisation.
- Promote agreed courses of action where mutual benefit has been identified.
- Provide an opportunity for the exchange of information.
- Produce an agreed countywide risk profile in the form of a Community Risk Register (CRR).
- Promote a systematic, planned and coordinated approach in responder bodies to address policy issues in the following areas:
- Planning for emergencies
- Publish information about risk assessments and plans
- Arrangements to warn and inform the public
- Information sharing
We also aim to:
- Support the preparation by all, or some, members of multi-agency plans and documents, including protocols and agreements.
- Promote joint training and exercising, then integrate this as part of preparations for individual organisations.
- Provide a governance framework for multi-agency resources, as well as a space for pooled funding through the SRF budget.
The SRF also provides a framework for the collective delivery of emergency arrangements required under Radiation (Emergency Preparedness and Public Information) Regulations 2019 (REPPIR), Control of Major Accident Hazard Regulations 2015 (COMAH) and Pipeline Safety Regulations 1996 (PSR).
