The Croydon Resilience Forum (CRF) is a statutory group of multi-agency responders, with the aim to provide a single forum for the integrated and coordinated approach to emergency and business continuity management and response as determined by the risks and needs throughout the London borough of Croydon.
Key members of the CRF include
- Emergency services (Met Police Service, British Transport Police, London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service);
- Local authority (Emergency Planning, Public Health and Events Safety);
- Health services (Public Health England, NHS England & Improvement (London), South-West London NHS CCG & local hospital trusts);
- Environmental services (Environment Agency and Met Office);
- Voluntary and community sector (British Red Cross, Samaritans, St John’s Ambulance, Croydon Voluntary Action and local faith/community groups);
- Business sector (Croydon BID); and
- Industry sectors (TfL, Network Rail, SES Water and SGN).
The CRF meets at least three times a year to:
Discuss risks within the borough
The CRF maintains a borough risk register, which identifies the potential risks that Croydon faces and our mitigating actions. You can find a copy of the CRF Risk Register in the file attachments at the bottom of this page.
Develop plans for specific risks identified
You can find copies of Croydon Council and multi-agency CRF emergency plans and procedures here.
Share best practice with other responders
We share lessons and best practice from incidents and exercises that we’ve been involved in, to improve and enhance our current response arrangements.
Train and exercise together
At least twice a year we hold emergency simulations to test our joint emergency response arrangements. We’ve held exercises on lots of different scenarios, from flooding and animal disease to utility disruptions and terrorism.
