What happens in an emergency?
Emergencies can happen at any time and often with very little or no notice. When they do happen, the emergency services, Shropshire Council and a number of other agencies work together to save lives and to look after the welfare of people in affected communities.
An emergency can be difficult to define, as what one person may consider an emergency another may not. Emergencies are usually events that can't be dealt with under normal working arrangements, requiring a co-ordinated and cohesive response.
