Prepare for an emergency

Emergency planning in Lincolnshire is coordinated by our Emergency Planning and Business Continuity service.

The risks in Lincolnshire

To help prepare for and respond to emergencies we publish a community risk register.

It provides information on the key risks that have the potential to cause disruption to the county. These are:

  • pandemic flu
  • impacts from disease/contamination
  • east coast flooding
  • inland flooding
  • severe weather
  • loss of critical infrastructure
  • cyber attacks
  • malicious threats

Central Government publishes a national risk register. It lists around 80 potential issues.

This register aims to increase awareness of the risks the UK faces. It encourages people to think about how to prepare for emergencies.
