3. Risk assessment

We recognise there are a number of potential hazards that may exist in East Devon and we have based our emergency response plans around those hazards.

Hazards are based on the Local Resilience Forum Community Risk register and include:

  • flooding
  • severe weather
  • long coastline with commercial shipping
  • major transatlantic airline routes
  • the M5 motorway and A30 trunk road
  • Exeter to Waterloo railway line
  • Exeter Airport
  • Gas pipeline
