In extreme conditions such as heavy snow and flooding in the parish, there is a possibility that the emergency services may not be able to reach the scene immediately. In such circumstances, the initial response may rely entirely on local people. To co-ordinate such activity, some councils have formulated a Community Emergency Plan to help their community to prepare for an emergency and reduce its impact. The idea is that local communities may know about particular hazards and problems that affect an area, be aware of individuals who might need assistance in an emergency, and have access to people, resources or buildings that allow them to respond more effectively to specific incidents.

Who should I contact in the event of an emergency?

The Emergency Plan for Aylburton is contained within the Lydney Town Council plan.

Can I volunteer my help?

Aylburton Parish Council is always looking for volunteers who are willing to help implement the parish’s emergency plan and assist with communication and distribution in the event of an emergency, to liaise with the emergency services and to act as a resource with regard to specific aspects of the plan. If you would like either to volunteer your services or to request further details of how you can be of assistance, please contact us. (If your offer of help is specifically during Covid-19, see the top of this page.
