Emergency planning


Cumbria Local Resilience Forum

Barrow-in-Furness Borough Council works in partnership with other local authorities, organisations and agencies in Cumbria through the Cumbria Local Resilience Forum (CLRF) to deliver emergency planning services throughout the county. 

The Cumbria Local Resilience Forum was formed in 2005 following the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 which required organisations across specific areas to work together to prepare, respond and recover from different emergencies.

Cumbria Local Resilience Forum has a website where you can find information and advice to help you better prepare if there was an emergency in the county. Follow this link:
