The National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies (NRR) is the unclassified version of the National Risk Assessment (NRA), a classified assessment of the risks of civil emergencies facing the UK over the next ve years. The NRR is a public resource for individuals and organisations wishing to be better prepared for emergencies. This document Chapter 1 provides an overview of the main types of civil emergencies that could affect the UK. It also sets out the definition of an emergency as it appears in the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, and shows, within the risk matrices, how these emergencies compare in terms of likelihood, and the scale and extent of the consequences. Chapter 2 outlines in more detail the civil emergency risks considered, the consequences of these, and how the Government and emergency responders plan to prepare for and respond to them. Chapter 2 also contains links to information and resources to help individuals and communities to plan for emergencies. Chapter 3 outlines the methodology used to identify, assess and prioritise the risks.
