“Norfolk Constabulary relies on the support of Norfolk Civil Protection Volunteers (NCPV) to provide staff, equipment and logistical support to the emergency services for training, during emergencies and especially at times of local community need.
A call to the NCPV comes with the confidence that an enthusiastic team of volunteers will respond, often at short notice and in difficult environments, to bring equipped and trained resources with the capability to assist with emergency operations. Most important is the welfare support they bring, in the form of food, shelter and rest facilities for all the services involved. NCP volunteers reflect community spirit in Norfolk and I would encourage you to consider ‘making a difference’.”
Inspector Sarah White
“The Civil Protection Volunteers have for many years provided invaluable support to the Emergency Services and Local Authorities in their ability to respond to emergencies, by providing personnel who give up their free time to assist with training events and exercises that are so necessary to ensure that the County is prepared to respond to any type of incident.
Their enthusiastic support to the community is much appreciated and supports the wish of Norfolk to be prepared for any possible emergency within the County.
It has been my pleasure to work with such a committed group of Volunteers and I look forward to a continued relationship with the group. I am aware that the group is engaged in developing their capability, to provide more support to communities.”
Head of Emergency Planning
Norfolk County Council
“From an Emergency Planning and responding perspective the Civil Protection Volunteers have provided support to Emergency Services, Local Authorities and the community alike. All members have a ‘can do’ attitude second to none and as a team they support a more resilient and safer Norfolk. Their catering and shelter facilities have been extremely useful in both exercising and training events across the County.
Volunteers are an invaluable resource in Norfolk and I would encourage anyone who is considering giving up some of their time to get in touch with this worthy organisation.”
Emergency Planning Manager
Broadland District Council
“For many years Norfolk Fire Service has called upon the fire-ground feeding services provided by the NCP Volunteers. On request, they have attended a wide range of significant fires within the County and have provided much appreciated hot and cold refreshments to our operational personnel. In addition, their feeding and shelter facilities have also been of great benefit to attendees during inter-agency exercises and training sessions.”
Brigade Emergency Planning Officer
Norfolk Fire Service
“Norfolk Civil Protection Volunteers provide a ready resource of manpower and equipment to North Norfolk District Council, able to support the local authorities in the event of an incident, or in our preparation for such an incident. They help with exercise support, flood awareness and community resilience education. In response they can be used to support District-appointed Rest Centre Managers when directed.”
