Winter Planning – ffffreeeezing

We’ve been blogging about your Continuity Plans for this winter and although not particularly cold at the moment, it will be a good idea to prepare for those little or big emergencies that could effect your business.

One thing that can make a difference to whether or not you can support a person in their own home is the weather.  So thinking about how your business will cope in extreme weather if the roads get snowy or icy, will really help your business, staff and the people you support.

So, as we approach winter we are encouraging you, our Home Support providers, as part of your Continuity Planning to ensure you and your staff are regularly updated about the latest weather reports.  Information on the weather can be obtained from the following links:

Met Office Weather Warnings

Environment Agency – Flood Warnings etc.

It is not possible to grit all the roads across Norfolk during icy weather, so it will be useful to find out which ones are.  For information about local gritting routes when you’ve had an alert about cold weather snaps, please click on the following link:  Local gritting routes across Norfolk

Ensure Business Resilience at winter time by:

  • Having a Continuity Plan
  • Testing it works
  • Keeping it up-to-date
  • Ensuring those who need to know about your plan do, and they know how to use it too.
