Welcome to the Northumbria LRF Website
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 Fora are bodies 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 that the Forum
has identified in our area and the plans that 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
