Note:

This is an abridged version of the Emergency Plan which is intended to be viewed on the Putley Parish Council website (www.xxxxxxxxx.org.uk) for information only.

 

Full contact details, information about village resources, skills, etc. are included in the full version but are omitted here.

 

For a full version of the Emergency Plan, contact the Emergency Co‐ordinator.

 

Purpose

All major emergencies will be dealt with by the emergency services, local authorities, utilities and voluntary agencies in a combined response. This Emergency Plan is not intended to be a substitute for these services and, on an emergency situation arising, the first action should always be to contact the emergency services by dialling 999.

 

The purpose of the plan is to cater for extreme circumstances (for example heavy snowfall) that might prevent the emergency services from reaching the scene immediately. In such cases the initial response may rely entirely on Putley residents and this plan describes how such an initial response will be coordinated.

 

 

Initial Actions

If an emergency arises and it is not possible to contact the emergency services straight away (or if their response may be delayed), the Putley Emergency Plan should be initiated as follows:

 

STEP 1. Contact the Emergency Coordinator

 

 

 

Nigel Rolinson 07831 236277

Follow-up Actions

Primary Assembly Point

4. All villagers who are willing to help in the emergency should gather at the Primary Assembly Point which is Putley Village Hall, Putley Green or, if Putley Village Hall is inaccessible, they should gather at Putley Church, Lower Court.

 

Village Resources

 

5. The assembled villagers will assess if resources such as four-wheel drive vehicles, lifting equipment or chainsaws may be relevant to the emergency and contact the appropriate providers.

 

 

Village Skills

 

6. The assembled villagers will assess whether skills such as those of doctors, nurses and first-aiders may be relevant to the emergency and contact the appropriate providers.

 

 

Vulnerable Groups & Individuals

 

7. If appropriate, and using local knowledge, the assembled villagers will make contact with vulnerable individuals in the village (for example the disabled, elderly, housebound and parents with young children).

Incident handling

8. During the emergency, anyone involved in coordinating a response should keep a log of all requests for assistance and action taken. See the form on page 7 of this document.

A supply of suitable forms is held by the Emergency Co-ordinator.
