Colchester Borough Council is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to take action to minimise disruption and keep residents and visitors safe.
Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
If you own or are responsible for a business or organisation, have you considered the impact of an emergency on your business?
We encourage all businesses and voluntary organisations to prepare Business Continuity plans. These will help you survive a disruption and return to normal activity as soon as possible following a major emergency.
If you cannot answer these questions, and would like to seek advice, please contact the Emergency Planning team.
You and your community can complement the work of local emergency responders and reduce the impact of an emergency on your community both in the short and long term.
Emergencies happen. Local emergency responders will always have to prioritise those with greatest needs during an emergency, especially where life is in danger. There will be times when you may be affected by an emergency but your life is not in immediate danger. During this time, you need to know how to help yourself and those around you by becoming more resilient.
The first step to community Resilience is to work with your local authority to produce a Community Resilience Plan.
