Reports & Community Risk Register

The West Yorkshire Resilience Forum (WYRF) is a partnership comprising of organisations which together plan, prepare and respond to emergencies across West Yorkshire. The WYRF is a requirement of the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 (CCA2004) of which risk management is a key duty. Nationally, risks are identified by the Government. The national risks are assessed locally by the WYRF to identify the risks which would have an impact on the county, 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 full West Yorkshire Community Risk Register is publically available on the West Yorkshire Police Website.

The e-Book is a short, interactive guide with the aim to help communities to be better informed, prepared and able to respond to an emergency providing both an overview and general mitigation guidance for the ‘high’ and ‘very high’ risks contained within the West Yorkshire Community Risk Register:

  • Severe weather
  • Health pandemic
  • Electricity loss
  • Malicious attack

By producing and publishing the e-Book, we hope that by accessing basic information about the risks facing West Yorkshire, communities will be better prepared and able to cope in the event of an incident.
