Major Emergency Plan 2008

The purpose of the new Major Emergency Plan is to put in place arrangements that will enable the three principal emergency response agencies, the Local Authority, An Garda Síochána and the Health Service Executive to co-ordinate their efforts whenever a major emergency occurs.

The Major Emergency Plan for Limerick City Council has been prepared in accordance with the guidance issued by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government in relation to Major Emergency Management and is consistent with ‘A Framework for Major Emergency Management’ (2006).
