Stroud District Council has a Civil Contingency Unit which draws up, maintains and reviews arrangements for dealing with major incidents.
It co-ordinates responses across the council, and works closely with the county's emergency services to ensure that the right people with the right skills are well-briefed and ready to react.
Emergencies can happen anywhere at any time. Small-scale incidents occur frequently and are dealt with effectively by the emergency services. We also help organise events and look after children's play areas.
