Clyde Off-Site Emergency Plan

This plan has been prepared in consultation with all participants and reflects the corporate approach to Integrated Emergency Management (IEM).

In the Police Scotland area, the overarching responsibility for ensuring effective management of civil protection measures resides within West of Scotland Regional Resilience Partnership (WoSRRP), as required by the Civil Contingencies Act (CCA) 2004. 

In general terms, the WoSRRP aims to ensure effective management of multi-agency preparation and response to emergencies which may have a significant impact within the WoSRRP area.  The WoSRRP will achieve this by promoting sound partnership working, developing a united emergency management framework to ensure that all partners are prepared for response to any emergency. 

This is a corporate emergency plan for HM Naval Base Clyde and its associated nuclear Operational Berths in the Clyde area, promoting mutual understanding of roles, identification of responsibilities and co-ordination of response of the Site Operator.  It meets the requirements of the Radiation (Emergency Preparedness and Public Information) Regulations (REPPIR) 2001.

It sets out the measures necessary to protect persons and the environment from the effects of major incidents and to provide for the restoration of the environment after a major incident.
