We can all remember the flooding which occurred in 2007 and the severe weather conditions we experienced over the last two winters, so we have updated the plan to include both flooding and severe snow conditions.    

Thorngumbald, Camerton and Ryehill Parish Council has recently updated its Community Emergency Plan, which is about how the parish would be affected when something out of the ordinary happens that disrupts everyday life, and putting effective measures in place so that people in our community can get back to normal as quickly as possible. No one can predict when something like this can happen but our Emergency Plan means that we can be prepared.   

Our plan contains a lot of confidential information, but you can view a summary of the  Emergency Plan   here. A copy has been delivered to every premise with the December 2014 edition of the Parish Journal. 

Emergency Plan Committee

To manage emergency situations the Parish Council have formed an Emergency Committee who each have designated responsibilities in the event of an emergency.

Members of the Emergency Plan Committee are:

  • Cllr. Margaret Wilson
  • Cllr. Denise Hardy
  • Cllr. Trevor Doyle
  • Mrs Avril Russell
  • Mr Malcolm Wilson

Additionally, each member of the Parish Council has specific responsibilities within our Emergency Plan

We have included some leaflets to download on the right  which may be useful to residents.   We have included some leaflets to download on the right  which may be useful to residents.   We have included some leaflets to download on the right  which may be useful to residents.   We have included some leaflets to download on the right  which may be useful to residents.   We have included some leaflets to download on the right  which may be useful to residents.

We don't like to think about emergencies happening, but nowhere is totally safe. An emergency can happen anywhere. What would you do if the Police knocked on your door in the middle of the night to ask you to leave your home because of the danger of a nearby emergency? Would you be ready?  

 

Vulnerable Register

Do you know anyone who would be unable to cope in an emergency, because of their age, mobility or for any other reason? Residents can apply to the Parish Council for their name to be added to the Vulnerable Person Register, which means that they would be given priority in an emergency situation.
If you, or anyone you know would benefit from being added to the Register, please contact the Parish Clerk on 01964 601111 or you can download a form here. 
Please be aware that information provided to the Council is strictly confidential and will not be given to anyone else. It will only be used in emergency situations.    

Would you Help Your Community?

The Parish Council is hoping to recruit a team of volunteers who would assist people in emergency situations in a variety of roles. It may be that you have specialist knowledge such as first aid, nursing, veterinary skills, etc. Or you may be able to collect someone’s medication from the Chemist or even just to check on an elderly or disabled neighbour to ensure they are OK. Whatever you can offer would be appreciated in an emergency situation. Please contact the Parish Clerk for more details.
