Emergency Planning work comes under the spotlight

Emergency Planning work comes under the spotlight

Efforts made by Birmingham City Council to improve the resilience of citizens will be promoted at the Emergency Services Show 2009, which runs on November 24-25.

The Birmingham Resilience Team are set to have a stand at the event, being staged at Stoneleigh Park in Coventry, which will be used to showcase its work with communities in times of need – which can range from city centre evacuations to floods to pandemics like swine flu.

Team members will be joined by representatives from HTK, a messaging service provider, which has formed a partnership with the BRT to create a database of community contacts that can be reached when warnings need to be issued.
