The Parish Council will be assisting in the development of Community Emergency Plans for each
village within the parish. These plans come into effect in the event of a major emergency,
such as heavy snowfall, flooding, a major fire, or the closure of the A39 due to a major accident.
The plans are an initial ‘first aid’ response before outside assistance arrives, the plans will contain an audit of hazards (such as industrial sites within the parish), resources and skills in the local community (ie. rest/shelter centres (generally Churches/village halls) GPs, vets, people with 4x4's, tractors, chainsaw certificates etc.) and is a plan of who is available to help in the event of an emergency.
For example someone with a tractor or 4 x 4 may be able to ferry medical staff into a village
to deliver medical supplies or treat a resident who needs medical attention.
We have already appointed two volunteer co-ordinators for Feock (Martin Davey) and Devoran (Tristan Jones) but are still in need of co-ordinators for Point & Penpol and Carnon Downs.
Please get in touch with Debra, Parish Clerk on
or phone 01872 863333 if you're interested in volunteering.
