Tendring District Council (TDC) has a responsibility under the Civil Contingency Act 2004 with regard to Civil Protection and Emergency Management. The TDC Emergency Planning Team maintains regular liaison with partner organisations and maintains a suite of plans and guidance documents to support the repose to, and recovery from, a major emergency affecting the district.
