Have you ever considered how Horsell might cope in an emergency?
If you're interested in helping Horsell to prepare for things that hopefully will never happen (!), we'd like to hear from you.
We're getting together with Horsell Neighbourhood Watch and Horsell Residents Association, plus a few other representatives (eg the manager at Horsell Co-op) to talk about what information resources might be useful to the village, in case any of the following things happened in Horsell:
- Pandemic flu
- Major disaster at Heathrow airport, taking all emergency services elsewhere
- Large-scale fuel shortages
- Major power cut
- Problems with the water supply
We think it would probably be useful to have lists of keyholders to community buildings, people with 4x4 vehicles, registered first-aiders in the village, etc. As well as thinking about the best forms of communication to alert and mobilise village residents in emergency situations.
If anyone would like to join our small task force, please join the special mailing list for the resilience committee on the Horsell Snow Angels' page
