How we prepare for emergencies

You can find emergency contact information for social work and housing repairs on our website.

If there is an emergency such as bad weather or a large-scale incident we will update this website with news and use Facebook and X/Twitter - you can follow us on the main council account, @SouthLanCouncil, and the roads account, @SLCRoads. Normally these accounts are monitored during office hours but during an emergency, there will be extra cover, depending on the nature and level of the incident.

The council is not an emergency service like the Police or Fire Service but it is an emergency responder and we work on a day-to-day basis with emergency services including police, fire, and the NHS to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our communities during emergencies.
