The Branch strives to meet four times a year and endeavour to hold one meeting in the north of the Principality, one in the south and two centrally. Please view our branch pages for more news, contact details and events.

Our members are drawn from a wide range of professional disciplines including the emergency services, local authorities, the Army, Local Health Boards, the National Public Health Service, NHS Trusts, voluntary organisations, utility vompanies together with self-employed and retired professionals who deal with emergency/contingency planning and crisis/disaster management.

The Branch strives to meet four times a year; following each meeting and whenever possible, we arrange a visit to a site of particular interest in the locality in which the meeting is held.

We also invite guest speakers to give presentations on topics that are of interest to our members.

EPS Welsh Branch Statement of Intent

 

The EPS Welsh Branch recently held a very successful annual conference.  One topic that was discussed at length was how to reinvigorate membership as budgets become more constrained and people struggle for time. One of the Society aims is to share best practice and learning, in order to promote the professionalism Emergency Planners. We are backed by the EPS National Executive and historically the Welsh Branch has been recognised as a strong and active regional branch.

 The Welsh branch seeks to continuously obtain and share good practice and experience with its members and other stakeholders, with the aim of increasing their professional competence.

 Our branch meetings are friendly, informal and normally at a venue that allows extra benefit for members attending. Following meetings, there is generally a tour of the facilities and the chance to ask questions.

 The Executive Committee all have experience in, or are employed within the world of civil contingencies. Their role is voluntary and extremely inclusive with members.
