Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
The Environment Agency is a public body whose primary aim is to protect and improve the environment and make a contribution towards the delivery of sustainable development through the integrated management of air, land and water. As a result of our management activities, we are often heavily involved in dealing with various environmental emergencies that have the potential to affect the air, land or water. This document outlines the Environment Agency's emergency planning objectives and procedures. It also highlights the Agency's functions when dealing with the two largest environmental threats, flooding and pollution. Anglian Region has developed a 24-hour service throughout the year to deal with emergencies. Central to this service is our REGIONAL COMMUNICATIONS CENTRE at Peterborough, which is constantly manned to receive reports of emergencies and to pass them immediately to one of our specialist duty officers on call at any time of the day or night. Staff who respond to and investigate emergencies are based throughout the Anglian Region in order to ensure that they are close to hand and familiar with their locality.
