Major Emergency Management Plan Publication

Local authorities, together with other Principal Response Agencies, publish plans outlining their coordinated response to major emergencies such as floods, storms and hazardous substance incidents. A major emergency is any event which, usually with little or no warning, causes or threatens injury or death, serious disruption of essential services, or damage to property, the environment or infrastructure beyond the normal capabilities of the principal emergency services.

Emergency Plan

The purpose of this, the local authority element of the Major Emergency Plan is, in the event of such an emergency:

  • To outline generally the procedures to be followed and the functions to be undertaken by the local authority services.
  • To coordinate the procedures to be followed and functions to be undertaken by the local authority, with those of the Health Service Executive, Gardai and any other agencies responding to an emergency.

The Major Emergency Plan is the combined, coordinated plans of the Local Authority, Health Service Executive and Gardai in the area where the emergency occurs.
