This is an exciting opportunity to gain an insight into emergency planning at a local authority level.

We will introduce you to the way we work here at Durham County Council, but also how we work alongside other responding organisations such as the police and fire service in a multi-agency environment. We will do this by using real-life examples of emergencies we have dealt with here in the North East.

You will learn about the types of emergencies that communities may be affected by such as floods, fires, sinkholes, and heavy snow. And how we go about helping these communities to become more prepared for if or when they have these emergency events.

You will also get the chance to help yourself to become more resilient and prepared for emergencies by completing some fun and thought-provoking activities that will benefit yourself, your family, and your friends.
