web based list of people that have skills and live in the Bristol area. To be accessed by the council or emergency services in the event of a possible emergency. People that submit their details would have to confirm every year that their skills are current and details remain the same.
example --- heavy snow preventing anbulance attending emergency, but the same snow has also prevented a doctor going to work and they are close enough to walk.
This could work for lots of incidents, not as an alternative but as an emergency reserve.
could include all those that own 4 wheel drive vehicles.
Why the contribution is important
when/if the normal services are unable to cope, the list could be used to find people who could help out.
