Every Resilience Forum has a Community Risk Register which describes risks for the community and assesses how likely they are to lead to an emergency and the potential impact they would have. The register is created through a risk assessment, and the information is used by the LRF to plan and prepare for emergencies that may occur.

The potential for national emergencies is determined by Government in its National Risk Register. The Lancashire Resilience Forum refers to this in order to consider national issues alongside the local risk context and identify the risks within the county. These risks can come from lots of factors–from natural events such as weather, human diseases, animal diseases and accidents, to deliberate acts such as terrorism. This risk assessment can help identify new issues or highlight situations where risk may be changing.
