Our partners

A number of agencies and organisations come together in partnership to create the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Resilience Forum (CPLRF).

The Civil Contingencies Act (2004) categorises the different types of agencies based on their roles in an emergency. Those involved in responding are defined as Category 1 Responders, and those who may be called upon to provide essential support or advice during an incident are Category 2 Responders. Other organisations such as those within the voluntary sector may also offer support within the community during emergencies. 

A list of our partners and links to their websites is provided below:

Category 2 Responders

Category 2 organisations (the Health and Safety Executive, transport and utility companies) are ‘co-operating bodies’. They are less likely to be involved in the heart of planning work, but will be heavily involved in incidents that affect their own sector. Category 2 responders have a lesser set of duties - co-operating and sharing relevant information with other Category 1 and 2 responders.
