Reports & Community Risk Register
West Yorkshire Prepared is the Local Resilience Forum (LRF) for West Yorkshire. The organisations in West Yorkshire Prepared work collaboratively to ensure there is co-ordination, co-operation and efficiency within the partnership, working together for the benefit of the communities they serve. Made up of the region’s key emergency responders and specific supporting agencies, the Partnership works to help communities prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and major incidents – key to this is risk management.
Nationally, risks are identified by the Government. The national risks are then assessed locally by the LRF to identify those that may impact West Yorkshire. These risks together form the West Yorkshire Community Risk Register. Under the CCA 2004, it is a statutory duty to publish all or part of the community risk register, where such information would allow members of the public to mitigate the consequences of particular risks.
The following e-Book is a short, interactive guide which aims to help communities be better informed, prepared and able to respond to an emergency. The guide provides an overview of the risks as well as general guidance for the ‘high’ and ‘very high’ risks contained within the West Yorkshire Community Risk Register. These currently include:
- Severe weather
- Health pandemic
- Electricity loss
- Malicious attack
