How it Works
Eassie & Nevay Hall is a designated Angus Council Community Resilience Centre. The Centre was officially launched by Depute Provost Mr Colin Brown on Tuesday 7th November 2017.
The Hall can be used as a safe refuge by the local community during emergencies such as severe weather and prolonged power failures. Also the Hall can be used as a local command centre and distribution hub by the emergency services. Funding from both SSE Resilient Communities Fund and Angus Leader Fund enabled the Hall to be equipped with the following :
- 4 petrol driven 2″ water pumps for use by anyone at risk of flooding
- 5 two-way radios
- external generator connection to ensure 24/7 heating and lighting of the hall
- USB charging points
- comprehensive first aid kits
- modern communications provision
ENKCA has produced and distributed a booklet encouraging those who consider themselves to be vulnerable to register with us so that assistance can be given quickly if required.
The advice to individuals and businesses is – be prepared for an emergency. This will help you to cope safely and puts you in a good position to recover more rapidly.
The area covered by the resilience centre is a 5km radius area of operation centred on the hall in Balkeerie.
