Somerset Prepared Virtual Event

From Tuesday 20th to Thursday 22nd October, we will be hosting free interactive training sessions to help communities be better prepared for the coming winter, as well as films that will show how Somerset has responded to the coronavirus emergency.

Communities expected to feature in the films include Taunton, Langport, Martock, Westbury-Sub-Mendip, Ham, Moorland, Misterton and Holcombe, with local people talking about their experiences over the past six months, and how their communities have come together. Organisations such as the Environment Agency and the Local Authorities’ Civil Contingencies Unit will also describe how they have adapted their work to prepare for winter in a Covid secure way, and what arrangements are in place to keep Somerset safe this winter.

Films will be uploaded daily during the event, and will remain available online afterwards.

Webinar booking details will open soon via Eventbrite. In addition to the agenda listed below, there will be sessions on the Highways snow warden scheme and mental health awareness for volunteers.
