Salford's major incident plan

This information has been produced by Salford City Council's Emergency Planning Unit and aims to show how preparation for, and response to, major emergencies in Salford takes place.

Major incidents require a combined and co-ordinated response which links the expertise and resources found in many organisations.

Planning for major incidents in Salford

The purpose of the city council's emergency management plan (major incident plan) is to provide a framework for managing the council's response to emergencies, which cannot be dealt with by normal procedures.

The plan is updated on a regular basis and emergency exercises are periodically enacted to test the effectiveness of its procedures.

The plan outlines the roles and responsibilities of the various directorates and provides for (if necessary) an emergency management structure, and sets out the roles and responsibilities of various partner organisations who may also become involved in the response to an emergency - for example police, fire service, NHS, public utilities, neighbouring authorities voluntary groups (Red Cross, Salvation Army, etc).
