London Calling! The Ultimate Multi-Agency Plan

The LESLP Plan is possibly the best example of cross-agency planning.   So there are two reasons why you may want to read it.  First, to steal all the good ideas on layout and presentation, as well as any relevant content.  Second, if your organisation is represented in London (UK) it applies to you.

LESLP stands for the London Emergency Services Liaison Panel (LESLP).  The LESLP Plan for London was made possible by the formation of the Panel in 1973 and, as well as those organisations you’d expect to see such as police, fire and ambulance services, it includes some that are often overlooked – including the voluntary sector.  The LESLP plan dictates how these entities work together during major incident.

For crisis planners, whether you’re interested in London or not, it’s vital reading.

It’s free and it’s available for everyone in search of a fantastic example of a plan that co-ordinates the emergency activities of multiple organisations.  Do you know the plan for mass casualties?  What about for dealing with survivors?  It’s all in here.

Unsurprisingly, the LESLP is used as the basis (or blueprint) for many similar efforts outside London.

The following organisations are represented in the plan:

  • Metropolitan Police Service
  • City of London Police
  • British Transport Police
  • London Fire Brigade
  • London Ambulance Service
  • All London Local Authorities
  • Port of London Authority
  • Marine Coastguard
  • RAF
  • Military
  • Voluntary Sector

The LESLP Plan includes sections on:

  • Actions by first officers at the scene
  • Scene management
  • Command and control
  • Gold and Silver co-ordinating groups
  • Casualty management
  • Investigation
  • Safety
  • Media liaison and public information
