The Community Risk Register is the first step in the emergency planning process.

Waverley's Community Risk Register provides additional public information about the hazards which are particular to the borough of Waverley.

The Surrey Community Risk Register (CRR) outlines risks throughout the county.

Both registers outline hazards and the control measures that are in place to mitigate their impact.

The risk register is based on worst case scenario assumptions and will help us prepare for these hazards. 

Risk ratings

We have created a risk rating for each hazard, based on the likelihood of the event happening, and the potential impact it could have.

The likelihood and impact values were agreed through the multi-agency Risk Assessment Working Group on behalf of the Surrey Local Resilience Forum (SLRF).  As a Category 1 responder and a member of the group, we have used the same model.
