Emergency and Contingency Planning

Who do we normally work with?

Wessex 4×4 Response routinely works with Category 1 and 2 Organisations, as well as partner voluntary agencies across each of the Local Resilience Forum (LRF) areas we cover :-

  • Avon & Somerset LRF
  • Wiltshire and Swindon LRF
  • Dorset LRF

What planning do we support?

Within the three LRFs, we are active in various groups (such as the Severe Weather Group and the Local Search and Rescue Committee) and are active in supporting updates of the various incident response management plans which are supported by our capabilities. This includes Transport Logistics Plans, Severe Weather Plans and Multi-Agency Strategic Holding Area plans as well as many others.

We would welcome the opportunity to be part of any additional planning, training and exercising opportunities that may arise. If you have such an opportunity and we are not already engaged, then please contact liaison@wessex4x4response.org.uk and one of our LRF Liaison Officers will get back to you to discuss.

We may also be able to help with awareness and training for your team planning for severe weather events, and to identify lessons learnt across the region as well as across the wider National network.
