Culter Community Resilience Plan Update
A group of Culter residents and members of Culter Community Council are working together to develop a Resilient Communities Plan for Culter. Community Resilience is an initiative supported by the local, Scottish, and UK governments. The principle is that communities develop a plan so that they can help during an emergency in a way that complements, but in no way replaces, the response of the emergency services.
The Culter Community Resilience Plan group are making good progress and wish to thank the organisations and the people of Culter who have helped them achieve this, and thank everyone who has already volunteered to help if there was an emergency.
Community Resilience depends on volunteers and more volunteers are needed. There are information leaflets in the library about the Culter Resilience Plan and these include a form for those who would like to volunteer. Completed forms can be left with the library staff.
More information about Community Resilience can be found on the Scottish Government website: www.readyscotland.org
