To be resilient, we need information about the hazards we could face. The North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum assess risks across the county and maintains a Community Risk Register.

Each community should identify local hazards specific to them. These may include:

Health

  • extreme cold weather
  • heatwave
  • influenza
  • animal disease

Infrastructure

  • malicious acts
  • loss of utilities
  • loss of transportation networks
