CEC Major Incident Declared
Covid-19 outbreak declared as a ‘major incident’
The Cheshire Resilience Forum (CRF) has declared the Covid-19 outbreak as a ‘major incident.’
The CRF is the partnership of agencies responsible for emergency planning, recovery and response. This includes Cheshire East and Cheshire West and Chester councils, Cheshire police, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and the NHS.
Declaration of a major incident is a recognition of the fact that we need to work collectively to meet the challenge and also releases additional powers between the partners.
