Introductory day to Avon & Somerset Faith Communities Major Emergency Plan

  • 09:30 AM
  • Avon & Somerset Police HQ, Valley Road, Portishead, BS20 8JJ

 A day introducing the Major Emergency Plan and the multi-faith response to a major incident. From fire to flooding or the risk of nuclear calamity to terrorist attack, the Avon & Somerset area is as vulnerable as any other part of the country. When disaster strikes there is a unique role for faith communities in the provision of care, comfort and support for victims. Tried and tested, the Avon and Somerset MEP exists to provide that response whenever and wherever it may be needed. Participation in the plan is open to leaders of faith communities or their nominated representatives. Introductory days are held each year for potential volunteers to familiarise themselves with the plan and explore the various opportunities for involvement. This next familiarisation day is an opportunity for anyone interested in helping with the Plan to learn more about what is involved. There is no charge for the training but prior registration is essential. Further information from Andy Paget on 07919 401 777 or
