Community Risk Register

The Community Risk Register gives an overview of the potential risks in Jersey which could result in a major incident or emergency.

Key risks fall into the following categories:

  • terrorism
  • cyber
  • state threats
  • geographic and diplomatic risks
  • accidents and system failures
  • natural and environmental hazards
  • human, animal and plant health
  • societal
  • conflict and instability

Some of these risks are more relevant to Jersey than others.

The register is developed by bringing together emergency planners and risk specialists from different organisations to anticipate the threats and hazards that Jersey faces. Part of this process is to then review these risks using UK national and regional risk registers, so we can assess and quantify our local risks. 

One of the risk registers that we use to validate the Community Risk Register is the National Risk Register 2023 editionThis provides a UK government assessment of the likelihood and potential impact of a range of different national security risks. The National Risk Register also has useful links that signpost national advice and guidance on what members of the public can do to prepare for these events.

The Community Risk Register provides a basis for contingency planning in Jersey, and it informs our planning and allows us to prioritise what exercises and training that we need to run. 

It’s designed to guide the work of the Emergencies Council and Jersey Resilience Forum and inform the public of the risks to the island, infrastructure and community. 

We regularly review and update the Community Risk Register because new threats and hazards emerge and risks change their profile.

The Island's Community Risk Register is currently being updated. An new version will be available shortly.
