Welcome to the website of the West Mercia Local Resilience Forum (LRF).
Here you will find information and advice about actions to take to ensure that residents, visitors and businesses in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Worcestershire are ready before, during or after a major incident.
General information is available about developments in Civil Protection, covering a wide range of emergencies from localised flooding to a terrorist attack.
At times of emergency, the website will be used to publish information about what is happening, how the incident is being addressed and by whom, and potentially how the public can assist. You can sign up to the E-alerts facility, which will send updated information to your email address automatically, or simply visit the website on a regular basis.
The website also displays the Community Risk Register, which lists a number of generic risks, their probability of occurring and potential impact, and the control measures in place. This serves to reassure you that the partnership has assessed things that could potentially happen and is in a state of preparedness to deal with these emergencies.
A glossary is available to explain any terms which may be new to you.
