More about us

A Local Resilience Forum (LRF) is a statutory body covering a police force area, designed to bring together category 1 and 2 responders for multi-agency co-operation and information sharing. Under the Civil Contingencies Act (2004) every part of the United Kingdom is required to establish a Local Resilience Forum.

The Bedfordshire Local Resilience Forum (BLRF) was formed in 2004. It brings together the emergency services, local authorities, National Health Service and other agencies which are all required to respond to any major emergency in Bedfordshire.

The Civil Contingencies Act details preparation and planning for emergencies.
