Arran Resilience: supporting rural emergencies

Arran resilienceArran Resilience was set up in October 2010, as a result of a GP Rural Fellowship project.

Recently, David Hogg (GP & Arran Resilience co-ordinator) and Mark Nelson (RNLI volunteer) were invited by NHS Highland to take part in their ‘Being Here’ conference, looking at how to support rural communities and develop local resilience.

The event was recorded by HCVF Television and they’ve allowed us to reproduce the video here.  You can view all the videos from the day, at their NHS Highland TV channel.

Arran Resilience is a cost-neutral, community-led initiative which aims to bring all the emergency services together.  Meetings are held to discuss pan-island issues, multi-agency training is organised and many chocolate hobnobs are consumed in the process.

In 2013 the Emergency Planning Society named Arran Resilience the UK Resilience Team of the Year.
