Welcome to the website of the West Mercia Local Resilience Forum (LRF).


The West Mercia Local Resilience Forum (WMLRF) website will close on 31st May 2016.

Detail in relation to the WMLRF, including links to agencies that can provide information and advice regarding actions that may be taken to ensure that residents, visitors and businesses in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Worcestershire are ready before, during or after a major incident, can now be found on the West Mercia Police Website.

The West Mercia Police website also provides a link to the WMLRF Community Risk Register (CRR).

The CRR focuses on serious risks that could result in an emergency, defined as:

  • An event or situation which threatens serious damage to human welfare in a place in the United Kingdom;
  • An event or situation which threatens serious damage to the environment of a place in the United Kingdom;
  • War or terrorism which threatens serious damage to the security of the United Kingdom.

Not all the risks in West Mercia have been described in this document. However the main risks, which could affect our routine day-to-day lives, are included.

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.
