Our role

The role of Eastleigh Borough Council

Eastleigh Borough Council is committed to prevent or reduce the effects of any disaster in the community.

We develop plans and train staff to respond should an emergency occur through the Borough Emergency Control Centre (BECC) or the provision of Prepared Rest Centres (PRC). We are also committed to maintaining a normal service during any disruption that disasters may cause through development and integration of Business Continuity Management (BCM) throughout the Council.    

It is accepted that in most instances within Hampshire, the District Council in whose area the incident occurs will lead the local authority response. We will be responsible for initiating and coordinating the total local authority response to any emergency occurring in the Borough, including the responses of Area Departmental offices of Hampshire County Council and those of the voluntary agencies.
