Risk? Keep Calm and Carry On - the evolution of post-war emergency planning

and its role in the 21st century

Peter Ludford

Cambridgeshire County Council


Abstract: The presentation will explore the origins of post-war emergency planning and its evolution from the post-apocalypse scenarios of the Cold War era through to the response measures for civil emergencies and contingency planning for terrorist threats.



It will deal with the evaluation of risk within the community, the formalised response structures in place within central, regional and local government and explore the relationship between the realistic

capabilities of responders and public expectation.



It will also assess the current appetite for business continuity planning within the private and public sectors and how this planning dovetails with conventional emergency planning activity.


Speaker: Peter's emergency response career started in the late 1970's, joining Surrey Fire and Rescue Service as an operational fire-fighter and gradually working his way through the rank structure until retiring in 2007 as an Area Commander within Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service.

In the latter half of his career he was responsible for emergency planning, operational risk assessment and the interim response to the threat of mass contamination attacks.  He has also worked as a business continuity consultant and currently manages the Cambridgeshire County Council Emergency Management Team.  He represents the County on the Programme Board of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Resilience Forum and sits on a number of local planning groups.


Directions: The main entrance is reached from Clarkson Road by going along the footpath to the right of the Newton Institute, and turning left through the gatehouse towards the main building (Pavilion A), which has a glass front and a curved grassed roof. The main entrance is in the middle of the glass front. Coffee before the talk will be in the common room in Pavilion D, and the talk will be in Meeting Room 4 in Pavilion A.. Free Parking is available after 5pm on Clarkson and Wilberforce Roads.
