Emergency planning

1. Overview


If there is a significant incident or emergency in Stockport, the latest updates can be found by following #SKIncident. We will not respond to individual posts during an incident.

In this section you'll find useful links and information on what to do before and after an incident occurs.

There are lots of emergencies that affect the UK every year. Fortunately in Stockport and Greater Manchester as a whole, they don’t happen often.

Whilst we can’t prevent emergencies happening, we can plan ahead to help reduce the impact.

Read the National Risk Register for information on risks and what you should do in the event of an incident. Being aware, preparing and responding are key.
