Following the events of "Storm Desmond" in 2015, Lancaster City Council Civil Contingencies Department requested that Parish Councils across the District establish Community Emergency Plan groups. This led to a small group of people from the Parish Council and local churches setting up a group to respond in the event of a future community emergency. The intention is not to take the place of emergency services or agencies but provide support locally if called on to do so by any of the emergency services. The activations and actions are limited to the items listed below. Residents are advised to make preparations for flooding or other emergencies, particularly if they are in an area of the Parish that is susceptible. The following telephone numbers and websites are useful in an emergency situation.
