Shearsby Parish Council has developed an Emergency Plan for use in dire emergencies.

If the answer is yes, and if you would wish to help the people of Shearsby in an emergency, then please register your details with the Clerk and we will add you to our list.
Remember: The Emergency Services would be in charge and you would only be used to assist them if they asked for help.
For an Emergency Plan to be successful the village should have Flood Wardens and Snow Wardens.
The role is about coordinating and reporting with the Leicester Resilience Team and Shearsby Council and its First Responders.
Currently we have Mavis Jeffery volunteering to be a Flood Warden.
Also, the salt / grit spreaders are Keith Beeson, Mem Izzet and Martin Littlejones, so these gentlemen are tentatively our Snow Wardens.
We would value having more people prepared to help in the event of flooding or snow.
If you are willing to get involved please contact the Clerk and register your interest. Training and / or a meeting may be required.
