These functions are informed by, and promoted through, close and ongoing liaison with key contacts in NI Civil Service departments, the emergency services, local government and other stakeholders within the UK and Ireland.
CCPB supports the effective functioning of the Civil Contingencies Group (Northern Ireland) (CCG (NI)), the principal strategic civil contingencies preparedness body for the public sector chaired by the Head of the NI Civil Service in an emergency response and by The Executive Office as part of wider preparedness. CCG (NI) comprises senior level membership from all NICS Departments and key civil contingencies stakeholders. CCPB also delivers this role when CCG (NI) is in emergency response mode.
As part of its role to promote and encourage good civil contingencies practice, CCPB has produced an overarching framework of civil contingencies policy, guidance and advice - see below:
