The Ready Scotland website is maintained by the Scottish Government’s Civil Contingencies Division.

The Civil Contingencies Division leads on emergency planning, response and recovery for the Scottish Government. We manage the Scottish Government Resilience Room, known as “SGoRR”, which is activated to co-ordinate the work of the Scottish Government and its agencies, and brief Ministers during emergencies and significant events.

Specialist teams within our division assist in the development of detailed risk assessments, which are used to inform policy across Scotland, and lead on training, exercising and debriefing our multi-agency response and recovery groups.

We also lead on the strategy, guidance and work programme for improving the resilience of the essential services, which we all rely on to go about our daily lives.

Our aim is that the people of Scotland are kept safe from danger, and that we have inclusive, empowered and resilient communities who can bounce back from disruptive challenges.
