Civil Contingencies Planning
Strategic Co-ordinating Groups
Scotland's eight Strategic Co-ordinating Groups (SCGs) bring the organisations involved in dealing with emergencies together in formal partnerships to prepare for and respond to emergencies.
These multi-agency groups are based in police force areas and are chaired by police chief constables and local authority chief executives. They have robust plans in place to respond to all kinds of events. These plans are regularly tested in joint exercises and during real emergencies.
