Find out how can you help your business to be one of the survivors against emergencies.

Preparing a Business Continuity Plan

Many of the businesses that survived the Manchester bomb had Business Continuity Management plans in place. However, it has been assessed that businesses affected by a disaster that does not have a plan in place only have a 50% chance of surviving the following 12 months.

Project Griffin and Project Argus

The UK is currently facing the most serious and sustained threat from International Terrorism ever known. The threat is real, ever present and enduring. The events of 2005 and subsequent operations have shown that it is vital that all agencies enhance their capability and capacity to deal with this threat.

At the same time domestic extremism - which incorporates animal rights, political extremism and other extremist activity - also poses significant dangers to the social and economic well being of the country.

The Police Service has a key role in the effort to counter terrorism, but cannot combat it alone: effective working with the full spectrum of partners, stakeholders and the community will be critical to our success in protecting the UK.

Project Griffin and Project Argus are your opportunities to become involved in an exciting development in community safety in Nottingham city centre.
