Risks in Merseyside
Merseyside Community Risk Register (CRR)
The Civil Contingencies Act (2004) requires us to produce a Community Risk Register (CRR) as part of our wider work in preparing for, responding to and recovering from emergencies. The register covers all types of risks and includes the joint plans and control measures that we have in place to protect the community of Merseyside. The CRR gives you information on the biggest emergencies that could happen in Merseyside, together with an assessment of how likely they are to happen and if they did what the likely impacts would be. This includes the impacts to people, their houses, the environment and local businesses.
If a risk is included in the CRR, it doesn't mean it will happen. It means we know it is a possibility, and we have made arrangements to reduce its impact.
We have highlighted the top 5 Risks and provide you with some general information and if you require more detailed information provided you with the link:
- Pandemic Influenza (Flu);
- Severe Weather;
- Loss of Critical Infrastructure;
- Environmental Pollution & Industrial Accidents.
We have also produced a document that will assist you, please download and print a copy of the document 'Emergency Preparedness and Management of the Main Risks in Merseyside'. We suggest that you keep a copy for your future reference and provide a copy to relatives, friends and neighbours who do not have access to this website.
If you require further details of the CCR, please view or download a copy of the public version of the 2016 Merseyside CRR available below:
