The Civil Contingencies Act 2004 defines Local Authorities as Category 1 Responders meaning MKC is required to fulfil the duties set out in the Act.
To do this, we work closely with Emergency Services across the borough (Fire, Police, Ambulance) as well as MK University Hospital, MK Clinical Commissioning Group, voluntary organisations, local and national resilience forums, and the business community. The Milton Keynes Resilience Group meets regularly to assess and share current risks, local information and plans and links directly into the Thames Valley Local Resilience Forum (TVLRF).
