This guidance, which is part of the Preparing Scotland suite, suggests how Scottish emergency responders can work with individuals, community groups, private sector businesses and voluntary sector organisations, to help them make communities more resilient.

Executive Summary

The main readership of this document will be Scotland’s emergency managers and resilience professionals, working in Category 1 and 2 responder organisations as defined by the Civil Contingencies Act (2004). These include local authorities, the police, fire and rescue service, ambulance service, health boards. It will also be of interest to Category 2 Responders and numerous voluntary sector organisations, amongst others, who continue to be the major source of Scotland’s resilience expertise and to be at the forefront in coping with the consequences of emergencies. It may well also be of use to others who have an interest in promoting more resilient communities in fields including, but not limited to, community engagement and community safety.

It suggests how they can work with individuals, community groups, private sector businesses and voluntary sector organisations, to help them make communities more resilient.

In line with other Preparing Scotland guidance, it is drawn from existing good practice in Scottish communities and provides a basis for innovation, that builds on what we know works.

Supporting materials have been published online. These are "The Guide to Emergency Planning for Community Groups" which is published on the Ready Scotland website, and is targeted at community activists and "The Voluntary Emergency Responders Guide",which contains information for responders on engaging with voluntary sector emergency response organisations which have a national footprint.
