Community risk register
The Community Risk Register has been created to identify and prioritise risks within North Yorkshire. It was created by the North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum in accordance with the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 requirements and with the National Risk Register.
The purpose of the register
The hazards/threats described in the North Yorkshire Community Risk Register are worst case scenarios. Including these incidents/events in the register does not mean that the North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum thinks that they are going to happen, it is simply highlighting the fact that they are a possibility.
The risk assessments included in the register only cover non-malicious events (i.e. hazards) rather then threats (i.e. terrorist incidents). This does not mean that we are not considering threats within our risk assessment work. However, 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 the risk register.
The information contained in the risk register will be updated on a regular basis.
