Pan Wales Response Plan

Pan Wales Response Plan

The Plan sets out the arrangements for the Pan-Wales level of Welsh response to a major emergency in or affecting Wales.

 

Although each service has its own operational procedures, the Pan-Wales Response Plan is intended not to override but compliment these arrangements together with the existing joint agency procedures agreed in each Local Resilience Forum area.

An important aspect of the plan is creating the ability to analyse the impact on Wales of any emergency or incident, and to provide coherent advice from the centre.  The arrangements provide for this by allowing the Emergency Co-ordination Centre (Wales) (ECC(W)) to act as a conduit to/from the UK Government when appropriate.

It must be stressed that some individual agencies will still maintain direct reporting lines to UK Departments. These will not be overridden by this plan. In those instances, agencies will share information with the ECC(W) as appropriate.
