ARCHIVE: Generic response plan for working with other departments
Where another Government Department is in the lead for an emergency that affects Defra interests, we use a Generic Response Plan to co-ordinate our response. This plan also provides a model for other Defra emergency plans. The plan provides a framework and model response structure for all Defra responsibilities.
Areas where we may rely on the Generic Plan include, for example, pandemic influenza (Department for Health); disruption to power or fuel supplies (Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform), transport disruptions (Department for Transport).
This generic plan has been tested in major exercises and found to be fit for purpose by independent evaluators.
