Logistic Operations for Emergency Supplies - Guidance for Emergency Planners

The Cabinet Office has published guidance for emergency planners on Logistic Operations for Emergency Supplies.

The objective of the guidance is to provide a common understanding of options available to emergency planners for the coordination, prioritisation and acquisition of emergency supplies.

The guidance is based on the following principles:

  • Local Resilience Forums should set up a multi-agency logistic support capability as a standard part of their emergency planning, response and recovery arrangements.
  • Regional Offices should facilitate logistic support arrangements within a region.
  • Central Government should provide strategic guidance and advice; also support and co-ordination in the event of exceptional circumstances.
