Emergency Planning

We can prepare for some things in life, but can we plan for the unexpected?

We're working together with the emergency services and other agencies to make sure we're as ready as we can be in the event of an emergency or major incident.

A key agency jointly funded by local councils, the emergency services and local health bodies whose role is to make Staffordshire prepared is the Civil Contingencies Unit (CCU), based at Stafford Fire Station.

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 find out what we're doing to help keep South Staffordshire prepared by reading Building Public safety in Staffordshire


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:

For Flu pandemics, please consult the Business checklist for Pandemic Flu Planning.
