Local Resilience Forums (LRFs) are the principal mechanisms at the local level in England for planning multi-agency responses to mitigate disruption from emergencies. During an emergency, LRFs can stand up Strategic Coordination Groups (SCGs) to enhance coordination. SCGs are currently being held in all 38 LRFs including in London. The London SCG is attended by representatives from Local Government. Barnet has opened a Borough Emergency Coordination Centre to manage activity across the Borough.
