Risks in Merseyside
Merseyside Community Risk Register (CRR)
The Civil Contingencies Act (2004) requires us to produce a Community Risk Register (CRR) as part of our wider work in preparing for, responding to and recovering from emergencies. The register covers all types of risks and includes the joint plans and control measures that we have in place to protect the community of Merseyside. The CRR gives you information on the biggest emergencies that could happen in Merseyside, together with an assessment of how likely they are to happen and if they did what the likely impacts would be. This includes the impacts to people, their houses, the environment and local businesses.
If a risk is included in the CRR, it doesn't mean it will happen. It means we know it is a possibility, and we have made arrangements to reduce its impact.
We have highlighted the top risks and provided you with some general information - please see the links in Related Pages below.
We have also produced a document that will assist you; please download and print a copy of the document Merseyside Community Risk Register, Main Risks and Emergency Preparedness. We suggest that you keep a copy for your future reference and provide a copy to relatives, friends and neighbours who do not have access to this website.
If you require further details of the CRR, please view or download a copy of the public version of the Merseyside Community Risk Register 2023.
