Emergencies Happen
In the last few years Scotland has experienced severe winter weather, flooding, travel disruption, fuel shortages, animal diseases, and a pandemic flu outbreak. Challenges like these affect us all in going about our daily lives, and every community has a different reason for wanting to plan to get through them... ...This guide is written to provide advice to community groups that want to help their communities cope better in an emergency. It is written with existing groups like community councils, residents associations or neighbourhood watch groups in mind, but could be used by any community organisation – or by a group of people in a community who want to be more prepared
