Civil emergencies

Police forces require robust, yet flexible, emergency planning arrangements to meet the requirements of the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, and to facilitate a professional, structured response to any emergency, regardless of the cause.

This APP module covers civil contingencies, disaster victim identification and casualty bureau.

It consolidates information from a variety of sources including decommissioned guidance, relevant legislation, the Strategic Policing Requirement, the National Policing Requirement and JESIP products.
