During a major incident, the emergency services and local authority may call upon voluntary organisations to assist in the response.
The Berkshire Emergency Support Group (ESOG) has been established to ensure good practice and working relationships within Berkshire. The group meets to discuss plans and how they may be able to support the local community in an emergency.
