Stroud District Council

Frequently Asked Questions

Here is the answer to the question:
What plans has the Council got in response to an emergency?

Stroud District Council`s role would be to assist the emergency services in the event of a major civil emergency. This assistance would mainly take the form of safely accommodating evacuees and help at the scene - pollution control, health advice, checking dangerous buildings etc. Three teams -Welfare, Operations and Emergency - would carry out these tasks.

Emergency Management is undertaken in close co-operation with Gloucestershire County Council, which has a dedicated Emergency Management unit. You can find further detailed information on their website via the first link below.

Specific information and advice on the terrorist threat can be found on the Home Office website via the second link below.
