Forthcoming Event – Get Ready for Summer

The Sussex Resilience Forum is presenting an event at County Hall North, Park St, Horsham. RH12 1XH. On Saturday 1st July 2017. Registration commences at 0930 and the event takes place 1000-1530 hrs.

‘Get Ready for Summer’ will be supported with presentations from various external and internal partners, including – Public Health England and The Met Office.

The day is aimed at Local Authorities and Voluntary Organisations within Sussex and will provide guidance and training for events which could impact our local communities. The day is divided into various sessions, with an escalating theme on ‘Heat Wave’ and how agencies work together with Local Authorities and the voluntary sector as the situation develops. There are breakout sessions after each presentation, when each table can discuss their thoughts and possible actions and then have the opportunity to feed back to the group as a whole.

Additionally, there will be stands set up to provide written materials to support the presentations and other relevant guidance and contact details.

These events have been well attended in the past and feedback from previous themed events has been very positive. It will be an enjoyable and insightful day and an ideal opportunity for networking and to reinforce the whole ethos of ‘Community Resilience’. A buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided on the day.

Tickets can be booked via the website Eventbrite. Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
