Community Risk Register
Would you know what to do in an emergency?
Suffolk’s Community Risk Register (CRR) will help inform you about the key emergency risks that could occur in our county. You can then use this information to prepare your home, your business, and your local community.
The Suffolk Resilience Forum (SRF) has a duty under the Civil Contingencies Act (2004) to produce a CRR, which highlights risks that have the highest likelihood and potential to have a significant impact on local communities or result in wide scale disruption. This information is reviewed and updated every six months to help Suffolk remain prepared.
There is also the National Risk Register which is an updated government assessment of the likelihood of, and potential impact of, a range of risks that could affect the UK within the next two years. The register also provides resilience guidance for the public. Visit National Risk Register for more information.
You can use our interactive map below to see if there are any risks in, or near to, the town or village that you live in. Hover your mouse over the icons to find out more.
We have started to incorporate What3Words within our plans and information. What3Words is used regionally and nationally by our emergency service colleagues when responding to an incident.
Street addresses aren’t always accurate enough to specify precise locations, such as building entrances, and don’t exist for parks and many rural areas. This makes it hard to find places and prevents people from describing exactly where help is needed in an emergency. Every 3 metre square of the world has been given a unique combination of three words. What3Words can be used for emergencies, navigation, e-commerce, delivery and more.More Information
