Emergency planning

Visit the North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum (NYLRF) to find out how to prepare for an emergency and local emergency services work together to help protect you, your community and local businesses.

If there's a major incident in York our emergency planning helps us to:

  • support the emergency services
  • keep main council services running
  • co-ordinate what voluntary groups do to help

Flood warnings

When there is a flood in York we'll provide assistance, practical support and information as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so.
