Resilient Communities

Below is a link to a short video, made with the community of Hutton and Paxton in the Scottish Borders, and featuring their first live-play community resilience exercise. It shows how volunteers, led by the area’s Community Council, worked with the emergency services to respond in an exercise scenario in which 2 local teenagers had gone missing.

The video can be found here: http://youtu.be/gWYtuhLsZbg

Many community groups are now taking a proactive and co-ordinated role in preparing to cope with emergencies. Could your Neighbourhood Watch play a part?
