Community Risk Register

The Community Risk Register (CRR) provides information on the biggest emergencies that could happen to Cheshire, together with an assessment of how likely they are to happen and the potential impacts if they do happen. This includes impacts on people, their houses, the community, environment and local businesses. These risks are regularly reviewed and a new CRR document is prepared and published every year.

This document is designed to inform people about the risks that could occur where they live, so they can think about that they can do to be better prepared in their homes, communities and businesses. Looking at all of the risks together can also help emergency services, local authorities and other organisations plan their joint response.

The Community Risk Register (CRR) aims to help these agencies make decisions on emergency planning work, and will help them develop better relationships whilst considering their capabilities and capacity. Any gaps identified can then be dealt with appropriately, depending on the priority of the risk. The overall aim of this is to identify the generic capabilities, which are required in response to many of the risks, so we can develop a strong capacity to respond to any incident.
