PLANNING FOR EMERGENCIES

Making communities resilient

Storm Frank in 2015, Storm Arwen in 2021 and Storms Malik and Corrie in 2022 demonstrated how our communities need to be ready to cope with future emergencies, whether they are storms, floods, drought or other events.

 

Mid Deeside Community Council has worked with Aberdeenshire Council and other local organisations, businesses and individuals to put in place a resilience plan for the communities of Aboyne, Kincardine O'Neil, Dinnet and Glen Tanar and the surrounding rural catchment.

  • Be Prepared

  • If a major emergency happens, it may be some time before help arrives. It’s very important that you and your family get together to prepare before any emergency arises.

  • Read the guide in advance and keep a printed copy safe in case you need to use it.

  • If you have guests, or if you are renting out your property or have tenants, ensure they know what to do and where to go.
