Business Continuity, Emergency Planning and Resilience

We can prepare for some things in life, but can we plan for the unexpected? Find information below for businesses, communities and residents at home.

South Staffordshire Council works alongside the emergency services, local health services and other agencies to make sure we're as ready as we can be in the event of an emergency or major incident.

Civil Contingencies Unit (CCU) is a key agency jointly funded by local councils, the emergency services and local health bodies whose role is to keep Staffordshire prepared, sharing advice and guidance to ensure we have robust plans in place, and advice for residents and businesses. 

We have plans to manage the most likely risks to affect Staffordshire and we train throughout the year to make sure we're ready. 
 
Find out how you can prepare for an emergency and what we're doing to help keep South Staffordshire prepared by visiting Building Public safety in Staffordshire   

Police 

In an emergency you should always call 999 - but if it's not an emergency - you can call Staffordshire Police's non-emergency number 101. 

Risk registers and our plans 

We have plans in place to help make us as prepared as possible to deal with an emergency or major incident. For information, please consult South Staffordshire's Risk Register   

Weather, driving and health advice 

You can get all the latest weather information and up-to-date weather warnings directly from the Met Office 

Business Continuity Plans 

We have our own business continuity plan which we update and test regularly. 

If you're a local business, would you still be able to operate in an emergency? Find out more about business continuity plans and how you can make sure your business is prepared by clicking the button above.
