West Yorkshire Prepared regularly carries out risk assessments to review the types of risks facing our region. By understanding these risks we can ensure we take steps to be better prepared for any such events happening.
It is useful for everyone to understand the types of risks we could face in West Yorkshire. A Community Risk Register has been developed that highlights potential hazards in our region.
Take some time to think about some of the emergency situations you could be faced with, and what you need to do to become better prepared should the unexpected happen. Complete a household emergency plan to consider which issues you might need to address ahead of an emergency happening.
Our ‘Don’t Panic, prepare’ booklet also covers many of the risks highlighted here.
