The Hertfordshire Local Resilience Forum, along with all such groups across England and Wales, was asked to complete a template for central government on the planning we had undertaken. Having submitted this, we have taken the decision to share our county plan, which provides a sense of the breadth and depth of our planning response to date.
As the situation is constantly changing, partnership agencies across Hertfordshire continue to review the joint and individual response plans to ensure they remain fit for purpose.
In addition to partnership planning, we have also set up an internal planning group which consists of colleagues with expertise in a number of key areas including crime investigating, intelligence, public order, logistics, workforce planning, communication and legal services.
As part of the preparation work, the group has worked together on table-top exercises exploring how the force would respond to different scenarios and challenges. These exercises have enabled us to fill gaps in planning presumptions and focus on priorities to get us ready for 31 October and beyond.
Whilst it is vital that public bodies and local businesses prepare for Brexit, it is also critical that members of the public are ready too. Please follow the government’s information and check-list site which explores the individual aspects of Brexit in more depth.
