Training materials for councillors and volunteers


In 2014 the Parish Council adopted a  Cookham Emergency Plan - Communication Strategy (pdf, 49kb). The Council held a flood exercise in August 2015 which identified some training needs. In 2016 councillors, volunteers and officers from the Environment Agency, Fire Service and Windsor and Maidenhead Council participated in a training event at Elizabeth House.  Here are the materials used for the training.
