Protecting communities

Resilience in the community

DEPP collectively and as individual local authorities aim to improve community resilience by encouraging groups or volunteers already active in the community to prepare and exercise local community led emergency response plans. This work is undertaken on our behalf by Devon Communities Together under the Devon Communities Resilience Forum project.

DEPP also encourage businesses to be more resilient by having business continuity plans to protect themselves against disruption (e.g. Cyber-attacks) by raising awareness with SME’s and voluntary groups and to be a conduit for information and guidance.
