Look out for this year’s Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) Prepared Week Roadshow.

LLR Prepared is the Local Resilience Forum which looks after emergency planning for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

The roadshow will feature stands from Leicestershire Fire & Rescue, Police, East Midlands Ambulance Service, local authorities, Environment Agency, health, voluntary sector partners and others. It’s your opportunity to find out more about emergency planning and to get involved.
