Fuel disruption risk and plan

A lack of fuel could occur at any time due to a variety of different circumstances that affect fuel supply, delivery, or transportation

What you can do

  • don’t panic - this can cause self-inflicted shortages
  • keep a quarter of a tank of fuel in your car all the time but do not fill up unnecessarily
  • follow national and local guidance provided at the time

Can your business survive?

Every business should have a business continuity plan in place in case of an emergency, like loss of telephones or flooding, in order to ensure the business can still function. Think about how fuel disruption might affect your business. For example: do you have a fleet of vehicles?

Our plan

The plan for Bedfordshire details the procedures in place in the county to bring all agencies together so that any crisis can be managed in a coordinated approach, therefore reducing the potential impact on the public.

The plan further outlines how the public will be kept informed of the situation. We aim to provide practical advice throughout the incident. Our plan has been developed following the issues affecting fuel supply in autumn 2021.
