    Severe Weather Plan (excluding flooding)

    Cork County Council has in place a Severe Weather Plan in accordance with a Framework for Major Emergency Management. The plan provides for the assessment and monitoring of severe weather warnings and outlines the Councils response to severe weather events which includes the salting of roads, clearing of snow from roads, removal of debris or fallen trees from roads and responding to emergencies. For exceptional severe weather events, the plan can be escalated to provide for the establishment of inter-agency teams to manage the response, the provision of additional resources to deal with severe weather impacts and communications protocols to ensure that timely and adequate information is made available to the public.
