Reports & Community Risk Register

The West Yorkshire Resilience Forum (WYRF) has produced a Community Risk Register as part of their work to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and disruptive events.

The aim of the Community Risk Register is to help local communities and businesses be aware of, and be more resilient to the risks they may encounter. The register covers a range of risks (hazards) with the potential to affect the West Yorkshire area. Individual risks of a sensitive nature such as security related risks (threats) are not included, however the 2018 register does contain five ‘generic threat’ risks included for awareness raising purposes. Each risk includes an assessment of how likely they are to happen and the impacts they will have if they do.

The assessment provides an overall rating of either ‘very high’, ‘high’, ‘medium’ or ‘low’. Just because a risk is listed in the register, this does not mean that it will happen, or that it may occur on any scale; it simply means that there is the potential for that risk to occur. The Community Risk Register is used to inform the work of the West Yorkshire Resilience Forum, placing risk at the forefront of resilience efforts in the county.
