The Northumbria Local Resilience Forum consists of organisations and agencies involved with emergency response in our communities across the Northumberland and Tyne and Wear area.
Local resilience forums were developed under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 to co-ordinate the actions and arrangements between responding bodies in the area - to provide the most effective and efficient response to civil emergencies when they occur (see role of local resilience forum).
Visit the site to find out more about the risks the forum has identified in our area and the plans we have put in place to ensure that our communities are resilient and robust.
This website provides local people and businesses with information and advice on steps you can take to be better prepared before, during and after an emergency.
At times of emergency, this website will be used to publish information about what is happening, how the emergency is being managed, where to find further information and how you can assist. It will also direct any enquiries to the North East Information Line (NEIL) - 08456 004 004.
For more information please contact us. Alternatively, view our news bulletins here.
The Northumbria Local Resilience Forum membership is made up of responder organisations found within the Northumbria Police area boundary.
There may be times when an emergency affects you, but your life isn’t in immediate danger. During these times, this section helps with what you’ll need to know.
While the emergency services are dealing with the effects and consequences of a crisis, your time and energy can assist with the social aspects.
There are ways you can reduce the risks to your business and livelihood caused in civil emergencies - by preparing a business continuity plan.
We are not a statutory body but each of our members have statutory duties under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004.
