See all services for Emergency Resilience


Whether you live, work or are just visiting or passing through Fife, we in Fife Council can provide you with advice and information to help you and your community, or your business, to prepare for disruptions affecting Fife communities.

Fife Council has responsibility, under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, to work in partnership with other emergency responders to prepare and plan to deal with the consequences from no-notice or potential emergencies and business continuity disruptions.  These can include impacts from severe weather events, major fires and explosions, oil and chemical pollution incidents, a flu pandemic, fuel shortages or IT/communications failure.

We also work with other partners such as Voluntary Aid Organisations and with local community groups to support them in developing community emergency plans which can not only support the overall response to an incident but will help their community to recover quicker.

Our pages can provide you with information and useful links for the topics below : 

  • How Fife Council is preparing for emergencies
