A scheme with a number of emergency and evacuation venues across Somerset
Sometimes, in an emergency, evacuation of a number of homes, businesses or communities is essential to the safety of everyone involved.
To make evacuation more efficient and less stressful, Somerset’s Civil Contingencies Partnership has introduced a new scheme called ‘Place of Safety’. The scheme aims to have a number of venues established across Somerset covering larger areas, such as Taunton and Bridgwater, as well as smaller communities like Kilmersdon and Alcombe.
The scheme is there to offer temporary shelter in an emergency for several hours. It builds on the sense of community that already exists, using local venues where people will feel comfortable and safe. Each venue will be supported by local authority staff and community members to provide the best possible care at short notice.
