COVID: Preparedness

Preparedness

Will there be a national incident room set up to assist fire and rescue services with the latest information?

There will be regular updates from NFCC. We will use our National Resilience, NRATs to provide oversight not dissimilar to the work undertaken to provide assurance during Brexit or indeed any large or protracted national incident.

Where appropriate we will use Workplace, Resilience Direct  and NILO Officers to disseminate significant and risk critical information. It is important we are not diluting or conflicting with the messages from Public Health or wider Government.

The NRAT will coordinate updates across all fire and rescue services weekly, specifically related to business continuity (with the potential to move to daily reporting if applicable).
