Preparing Scotland is a set of national guidance documents to assist Scotland in planning, responding and recovering from emergencies.

It is made up of a 'Hub' which sets out the philosophy, principles and good practice for emergency response in Scotland, and 'Spokes' that provide detailed guidance on specific matters.

Preparing Scotland publications are subject to Crown Copyright. They are updated in line with best practice and lessons from emergency exercises, live events and research.
