Gwent Local Resilience Forum – Community Risk Register

We are required under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 to consider the likelihood and impact of a range of hazards occurring within the Gwent Police Force area.

This work is an ongoing process. The risk assessments included in the Gwent Community Risk Register will only cover non-malicious events (i.e. hazards) rather than threats (i.e. terrorist incidents).

Typical hazard scenarios that are being considered include, for example:

  • Transport accidents
  • Severe Weather
  • Flooding
  • Industrial accidents and environmental pollution
  • Human health
  • Animal health
  • Industrial technical failure

Risk assessment is subject to constant review. The inclusion of hazards or scenarios does not mean that the Local Resilience Forum believes the risk will occur, or that if it were to do so, it would be at that scale. The risk scenarios are reasonable worse case assumptions upon which the risk assessment is based.
