The County and District Authorities produce guidance to residents in the event of an emergency. Please click here to view the East Sussex County Council Emergency Planning guidance and Wealden District Council Emergency Planning and Resilience information.

The Herstmonceux Parish Emergency Plan is specific to Herstmonceux Parish community, villages and settlements. The guidance directs suggested actions to take in the event of a potential or an emerging crisis/emergency that may affect local residents, an incident being such as:
"An incident which threatens life, property or the environment, which involves one or more of the emergency services and Herstmonceux Parish Council, and which requires more than normal day-to-day resources to resolve."

The Emergency Plan:

  • identifies and mobilises local resources to assist the emergency services;
  • promotes local self-help if an emergency service response is significantly delayed or reduced.
