Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Resilience team

The Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Resilience team provide the emergency planning function for Coventry City Council and share the service with Solihull MBC and Warwickshire County Council.

Both in and out-of-hours the team operates a 24/7 Duty Officer System to ensure an effective response to any incident occurring across the sub-region. The resilience team covers an area of 870 sq miles serving a resident population of over a million.

The work of the CSW resilience team is dictated by the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. 

The Act places a number of duties on Local Authorities which CSW Resilience carries out. These are:

  • Assessing the risk of emergencies occurring
  • Put emergency plans in place
  • Ensure they have robust business continuity management arrangements
  • Share information with other local responders to enhance co-ordination
  • Co-operate with other local responders to enhance coordination and efficiency
  • Provide advice and assistance to businesses and voluntary organisations about business continuity
  • Make information available to the public about civil protection matters, and maintain arrangements to warn, inform and advise the public in the event of an emergency
