The emergency planning community now has a central source of information on civil contingencies in Wales. The Wales Resilience website is a window into work being undertaken at the pan-Wales level, the Local Resilience Forum level and within individual agencies. As well as providing emergency planners with the latest news and best practice, the site is also a source of information for the Welsh public on what to do during an emergency.
