Dear Kent County Council,

Please send me information on:
Within the council, who is the person that is responsible for emergency planning?
What systems does the council use when an emergency occurs? E.g. pen and paper, Excel, a system or another method?
If the council uses a software system, which vendor do you use for your emergency planning solution?
What is the current contract term (how long is it and when does it expire)?
What is the value of said contract?
If the council does not have a software system, will the council be researching the market (with the intention to buy) over the next 12 – 18 months?
If yes, when will be the council be aiming to purchase the system by?
I would like the above information to be provided to me via email.
