ResilienceDirect is an online private ‘network’ which enables civil protection practitioners to work together – across geographical and organisational boundaries – during the preparation, response and recovery phases of an event or emergency.

The Civil Contingencies Act 2004 requires that emergency responders co operate and share information in order to efficiently and effectively prepare for, and respond to, emergencies and ensure that action is coordinated. ResilienceDirect helps organisations to fulfil these duties by supporting the adoption of common working practices, and ensuring that key information is readily and consistently available to users.

You must be a member of an organisation in the resilience community to join. If you are not sure if this applies to you, contact the RD Helpdesk at
