Community Resilience Team

COMMUNITY RESILIENCE TEAM

Brading Town Council is to form a Community Resilience Team comprised of Councillors, members of local organisations, and the general public.
The aim of the Team is to provide a link between the Isle of Wight Council, the emergency services, and rapid response teams in the case of an emergency or major incident.
The Town Council would be pleased to hear from anyone who feels they could volunteer, and perhaps become a member of the Team.

Please contact us on 01983 401770 or at townclerk@brading.gov.uk or call into the Brading Centre.
