It is vitally important our community is able to respond to and recover from an incident or emergency either alongside the emergency services or in their absence due to abnormal circumstances. This is even more crucial in remote communities with a high proportion of elderly residents.
East Kintyre Community Council have drawn up an Emergency Plan. An emergency could be anything from severe weather, flooding or fire to a major incident involving transport. Preparing the community for these kinds of events will make it easier to recover following the impact of an emergency. Being aware of the risks that we may encounter and who within our community might be able to assist you, could make our community better prepared to cope with an emergency.
Local emergency responders will always have to prioritise those in greatest need during an emergency, especially when life is in danger. During these times, our community will benefit from knowing how to help ourselves and those around us until assistance arrives.
