Emergency Plan

BPC Emergency Plan - Coronavirus 

Public Meeting for Emergency Plan minutes December 2014

Burley village Emergency Plan is currently being updated. If you are able to help other residents in an emergency, such as the recent long power cuts, or know of anyone elderly/vulnerable who may require assistance in an emergency then please contact the clerk in the first instance Tel: 07503 203399.

Please click on the link below to open an email to BPC from SSE Power Distribution. This was in response to the attendance of two SSE representatives at the Parish Council meeting in March, where Councillors questioned the reasons for the power outages in adverse weather conditions over winter and how SSE could improve service in the future.

Response from SSE Distribution

9th May 2014 correspondence from SSE:

Please be aware that we are expecting some bad weather on Saturday which could cause higher than usual fault levels on our network. As the
statement below explains we are already preparing our response teams both in the field and our contact centres. Given our recent interactions following
the winter period I wished to extend our notice to you, so that you can advise your colleagues and constituents if you wish on our preparedness.

There is a strong possibility the weather will improve against the current forecast, however please ensure mobile phones or laptops are fully charged for
tomorrow and that you have alternate forms of lighting available as a contingency. As noted below the emergency number for us is 0800 072 72 82, should
you suffer any interruption please don't hesitate to contact us.

We will also be in contact with the County Emergency Planning Offices to update them on our status and our Community Liaison Teams will be on the
ground passing on face to face updates to affected communities.
