Council provides emergency information to residents
A project to provide emergency information to residents will come to fruition week commencing April 24th onwards as 9,000 Emergency Z Cards are delivered to all residential properties in Harwich and Dovercourt.
The project was set up by Harwich Town Council’s Environment and Community Committee in order to ensure that all residents had access to simple, easily accessed information in the case of an emergency and it has taken almost 18 months, working with TDC, utility companies and organisations such as the Environment Agency, to collate the information and to produce the card.
Cllr Charlie Powell, who has overseen the project, says
“We wanted to provide emergency information to all residents and it was a big job pulling it all together and then offering it in a simple, user friendly format. The Z Card will be useful to everyone.”
The project has cost Harwich Town Council £4,500 which includes having a card delivered to every residential property in Harwich and Dovercourt.
“Officers and councillors have worked together to produce this Z Card and we are very pleased with the final product,” continued Charlie Powell. “The cards will begin dropping through people’s letter boxes next week and could make a big difference in an emergency.”
