The Port of Sunderland Emergency Plan provides an effective response to serious incidents within the Port of Sunderland, whether on board ships or within the land and buildings under its jurisdiction. It is intended to dovetail with other port contingency plans and those implemented by the emergency services, local authority and port facility operators.
