Staffordshire Community Risk Register

The purpose of the Staffordshire Community Risk Register (CRR) is two-fold namely:

  • To direct Contingency Planning, Emergency Planning and Business Continuity Management workstreams within Staffordshire, to ensure that time, money, and expertise is focused to provide the best capabilities possible in respect of the risks faced.
  • Additionally, the publication of the CRR is to reassure the people and communities of Staffordshire that a well-established, proactive risk assessment process operates here.

Staffordshire Risk Matrix (27 KB) - The Staffordshire Risk Matrix, colour coded and populated with the identified risks.

Discounted Risks (58 KB) - There are a number of risk categories that by their very nature do not relate to Staffordshire and are therefore not included in the register. This document lists those risks and the reasons why they have been discounted.

National Risk Register

The National Risk Register provides an updated government assessment of the likelihood and potential impact of a range of different and emerging risks.

Malicious threats

In line with national guidance, members of the Staffordshire Resilience Forum do not assess malicious threats locally but consider the national assessments (listed in the NRR).  Using this information we look at possible consequences of such attacks and we ensure that our existing plans and protocols are still fit for purpose. 

The main threats listed in the NRR are:

  • Terrorist attacks on crowded places
  • Terrorist attacks on infrastructure
  • Terrorist attacks on transport systems
  • Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear (CBRN)
  • Cyber attacks 

Please see About the Community Risk Register for more information on the above threats.
