Working together for a resilient Birmingham.

Colmore Business District Event

CBD logoOn Friday 6th December the Birmingham Resilience Team, Colmore Business District and West Midlands Police jointly hosted a networking and emergency scenario exercise session.  Delegates considered the impact of business disruptions including significant power outages in the city centre, city-wide surface water flooding affecting public transport routes and the impact of large-scale protests.  Businesses had the opportunity to discuss and share best practice for evacuation procedures.  Clare Perkins, Colmore BID said, ‘this was a great opportunity to build on Colmore BID’s objective to make the business district safe and welcoming’ and we look forward to working with business colleagues in progressing the ideas discussed.’  Delegate feedback was extremely positive and are keen for future involvement.
