Emergency planning cooperation with La Manche


A senior officer in charge of Emmergency planning in the neighbouring department of La Manche (Normandy) visited Guernsey and Jersey 22-23 June, to meet his counterpart in the islands. The visit has served to strengthen the relationship between the Préfecture of La Manche and the Channel Islands. During his visit, the French officer met with representatives of the Police, Fire, Ambulance, Coastguard and Emergency Planning Services in both Islands and visited their operational bases. These meetings proved to be beneficial and enabled to discuss operational issues and capabilities, underlining the close cooperation between the jurisdictions.
