Tayside Local Resilience Partnership (LRP)

As part of the Tayside LRP Perth and Kinross Council works closely with neighbouring councils, the emergency services, the NHS, Scottish Environment Protection Agency and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to prepare plans and develop emergency response procedures.
