The Parish Council has a plan to call on a group of volunteers from the village to help look after people in the event of an emergency.
The Police, County Council and District Council have a detailed and formal Emergency Plan for the whole area, but it can be useful to have a local plan for smaller scale events, such as localised bad weather.
The group is always interested in any help you can offer including;
- People who have a 4 x 4
- People qualified to use a chain saw
- People who are willing to check on their neighbours
- People who are first aiders
- People to collect food or prescriptions for their neighbours during icy weather
In the event of an emergency we are likely to divide up the village into smaller areas with a named volunteer for each area, perhaps a road or part of a road.
For the latest information about this group and for regular updates during an emergency situation you can follow the Acle Emergency Planning - Resilience page on Facebook.
We recognise that not all residents use or have access to social media, as such any emergency messages will be communicated using our volunteer network
