Kent Resilience Forum
The future can be random and unpredictable. Being prepared and
reducing risk means that, whatever happens, people can continue
their lives freely and with confidence.
One of the duties of the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 is
the formation of the Kent Resilience Forum, whose purpose is to
ensure that there is an appropriate level of preparedness to enable
an effective multi-agency response to emergencies that may have a
significant impact on the communities of Kent and Medway.
The Kent Resilience Forum ensures that Kent and Medway have the
ability to bounce back from disaster. The forum assesses every risk
and helps the public to be fully informed and prepared. It is where
partners from the emergency services, local authorities, voluntary
organisations and utility companies come together to ensure
resources and plans are in place.
Kent Resilience Forum members
The Kent Resilience Forum is a partnership of organisations that
have a role to play in emergency planning and/or response to an
emergency. The organisations are divided into two groups: Category
1 and Category 2 responders. Category 1 responders are those that
have a major role to play in the preparation, mitigation and
response to an incident. Category 1 responders are Medway Council
Category 2 responders are those organisations that
can have a response role and are therefore involved in planning
These organisations do not regularly attend meetings but it is
understood that they do play a role and have a wealth of knowledge
and are therefore involved in discussions.
