Last Wednesday I revealed that the Pocklington Town Council (PTC) Emergency Plan is top-secret and is not available for residents to familiarise themselves with in case of emergency.
Forced To Publish
Thanks to a FOI request from New Zealand I can now confirm that PTC will be forced to make the Emergency Plan public.
It is a sad state of affairs that relies on a post by myself being read in New Zealand to force PTC to see sense to ensure the safety of Pocklington residents.
The objective of the Emergency Plan is to ensure Pocklington is as prepared as possible in case of a disaster with no outside help. All foreseeable situations must be mitigated.
I am of the opinion that PTC must source as much of the following as possible from within Pocklington:
- Medical persons
- 4 x 4
- Camping equipment
- Ladders, chain saws
To ensure this all residents and businesses should be contacted.
