Emergency Help in the Parish

An updated version of the full emergency plan is available for review here. Longwick-cum-Ilmer Parish Emergency Plan V3 1 March 2020

Nearly all emergencies affecting Longwick-cum-Ilmer will be dealt with routinely by police, ambulance, local authorities and the major utilities. However, there may be occasions when circumstances such as storm damage or deep snow, delay the arrival of outside assistance, and the community could help itself.

The Parish Council has established a list of volunteers who have agreed to help when called upon. The assistance offered includes driving with 4×4 vehicles (perhaps to appointments or even for food and other provisions); help with other vehicles like tractors and snow ploughs and equipment such as chain saws, and first aid.

This service is considered to be of most potential value to vulnerable people within the community, who do not have friends or relatives to call upon in their hour of need. To request emergency help, please call one of the Emergency Team from the following list:

Councillor Val McPherson (Chair) 07815 144 691

Councillor Jane Rogers 01844 347 906

Councillor Ian Walker 01844 345 902

Your request will be matched to one or more volunteers, where possible, and provided assistance can be mobilised, it could soon be on its way to you.
