Who are we?

The North Berwick Community Emergency Resilience Plan was developed by North Berwick Community Council in partnership with the community and the Resilient Communities Team at East Lothian Council. It is there for emergencies where statutory and voluntary services need extra help and support. We use the plan to identify the risks faced by people across our community, in particular people who are most at risk, and to mobilise community volunteers and resources.

We have a Community Emergency Coordinator for the plan who draws together a team of volunteers who set up and deliver the emergency plan. The plan is in place until services are able to manage again.

The Emergency Resilience Plan was most recently enacted just prior to the whole country entering lockdown in March 2020, following the outbreak of COVID-19. In line with shielding requirements, the Emergency Plan stood down on July 31st. If you still need help, you can find details of who to contact by clicking here.

This website will remain active and be used again during future emergency situations.
