star this property answer text <p>Local Resilience Forums are required under the Civil Contingencies Act to compile and publish community risk registers setting out the main risks in their areas to both raise awareness and guide contingency planning. In doing this, they are guided by, among other things, the National Risk Assessment (NRA) which covers the range of risks that could cause a civil emergency in the UK, and provides a list of the common consequences of these risks in the form of planning assumptions. These cover the maximum scale, duration and impact that could reasonably be expected to occur as a result of emergencies.</p><p>The NRA is classified for national security reasons, and it is therefore not possible to share details of the reasonable worst-case scenarios or planning assumptions. A declassified version is available in the form of the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-risk-register-for-civil-emergencies-2015-edition" target="_blank">National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies</a> (NRR). This is also provided to the local planning community, and has been placed in the House of Lords Library. Most Community Risk Registers are also available online.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Civil Contingencies Act places the primary responsibility for emergency planning on local responders working together. This activity at local level is constantly developing in the light of testing and exercising and actual events. It is supported at the national level by a range of activities including the production of the National Risk Assessment (NRA), a classified biennial assessment that identifies and prioritises the most significant emergencies the UK could face over the next five years, with the 2014 NRA having recently been made available to local responders; the cross-government National Resilience Capability Programme supported by the 2014 National Capability Survey, a voluntary biennial survey of local responders which provides data to government and enables self-improvement activity at the local tier; and the doctrine and training provided by the Emergency Planning College. In addition, the government’s annual review of UK resilience continues to consider the local, regional, and national level issues that pose the greatest risks to the UK.</p><p> </p>
