What is the Council Resilience Unit?

The emergency services, local authorities, health boards and utilities within the West of Scotland, all work together under the name of the West of Scotland Regional Resilience Partnership (WoS RRP) at strategic, tactical and local levels. During major incidents the Council's Resilience Unit provides an important single point of contact between the Emergency Services and all Glasgow City Council departments.

The Resilience Unit is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is normally alerted by Police Scotland. There are many scenarios which require action by the Resilience Unit, including Fire, Flooding, Explosion, Chemical Spill and Dangerous Buildings.

The Resilience Unit plans for major incidents by writing contingency plans which are either required by legislation or by good practice.

What is an emergency?

  • An event or situation which threatens serious damage to human welfare in a place in the United Kingdom
  • An event or situation which threatens serious damage to the environment of a place in the United Kingdom, or
  • War, or terrorism, which threatens serious damage to the security of the United Kingdom

Additionally, to constitute an emergency, an event or situation must pose a considerable test for an organisation's ability to perform its functions.
