Multi Agency report
The local resilience forum (LRF), made up of local organisations and emergency services, carried out a post incident review into the emergency response. The review and subsequent report was carried out by a third party and considered feedback from key stakeholders, the community and from organisations involved in the response.
Whilst acknowledging key learnings, the report also recognised the amount of time, resource and coordination that was required of the organisations involved.
Collaboration between Cadent, Northern Powergrid, Sheffield Council and Yorkshire Water has resulted in a better understanding of the challenges during such an incident and better ways of working together in the future.
Key takeaways from the report include:
- Improvements need to be made to the process of sharing priority service data between organisations to ensure vulnerable customers are supported throughout incidents of this nature. LRF partners are working to standardise the data to ensure it is in a shareable format and improve processes.
- A review of criteria to declare a Major Incident when not related to a blue light service is needed. Declaring a Major Incident can help with resources and mutual aid requests.
- Utilities to consider developing a template tankering plan for any future incidents of this nature.
Organisations involved are continuing to work together to learn from the incident and put improvements in place where needed.
