THE PURPOSE OF THE REGISTER
The Cheshire, Halton and Warrington Community Risk Register has been compiled by the Local Resilience Forum (LRF) in
accordance with the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 (CCA) and its associated statutory guidance on Emergency Preparedness, all of
which can be accessed through the UK Resilience web-site on http://www.ukresilience.info/home.htm. The purpose of the register is
to reassure the communities of Cheshire, Halton and Warrington that an assessment of potential hazards and their related control
measures / plans has been made to build and maintain both an effective preparedness and response.



OUR COMMUNITY
An overview of the Cheshire, Halton and Warrington area can be found in the Community Profile document published in association
with this Community Risk Register.


ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY AND CONSIDERATIONS
The register that follows identifies in column ‘C’ the areas of potential risk considered by the Cheshire, Halton and Warrington LRF
under each of the CCA identified Hazard Categories, namely:



    •   Industrial accidents/environmental pollution
    •   Transport accidents
    •   Severe weather
    •   Structural
    •   Human health
    •   Animal health
    •   Public protest
    •   Industrial/ technical failure

Each potential risk has an ‘Outcome description’ as shown in column ‘D’. These outcomes have been determined at both National
and Local level according to the Hazard and are intended to show the maximum/worst possible outcome that could be expected
given an event occurring in each of the Hazard areas.


Against each of the potential risks the LRF has made an assessment against the Likelihood and Impact to give a Risk Rating in
columns ‘E, F and G’.
   • The Likelihood has been considered against historical and other sources of data of an event in these areas occurring over
      the next 5 Years.
   • The Impact has been considered against each potential event and its likely impact on the Health, Social, Economic and
      Environmental aspects of our Community.
   • The Risk Rating is taken from the Risk Assessment Matrix (see end of register) as defined in the CCA guidance, which
      sets the risk level against the likelihood and impact.
   • Column ‘H’ describes the capability and controls currently in place within Cheshire, Halton and Warrington.

The attached risk register only covers non-malicious events (i.e. hazards) rather than threats (i.e. terrorist incidents). This does not
mean that we are not considering threats within our risk assessment work, but given the sensitivity of the information supporting
these risk assessments and the potential for use by adversaries, specific details will not be made available via this web-site. Threat
scenarios that are being considered include, for example: Chemical / Biological/ Radiological attacks, Electronic attacks – e.g.
affecting utilities and communications.

Risk assessment is a not a static process and is subject to constant review. The information contained on this web-site will, as a
result, be regularly updated.

Enquiries concerning the Community Risk Register, should in the first instance be directed in writing to:
