Aims and Objectives of Major Emergency Management

The primary aim of emergency planning is to achieve an effective response to all major incidents and emergency situations regardless of their cause.

To achieve this aim we must:

  • Ensure we have planned and prepared an organised and practical response.
  • Effectively contribute to the combined response of all the emergency services.
  • Have plans that are sufficiently flexible to deal with a range of situations that may increase in significance, duration and complexity.
