Abstract Introduction: PHE is a Category 1 Responder in the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 with a duty to work with Category 1 and 2 Responders to provide Multi-Agency Major Incident Responses.Providing a sustained response is a challenge as most Agencies partly resource responses with employees with other roles and/or volunteers. This challenge is magnified for Agencies with broad geographical remits covering multiple Local Resilience Forums, PHE East of England (EoE) cover 6 ½ .In January 2017 the East Coast of England was at high risk of flooding. By Friday January 13th Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk had declared Major Incidents, 'Rising Tide', with flooding expected within 24 hours.Method:On Friday January 13th 2017 PHE EoE had engaged in several days of Multi-Agency flood monitoring/preparation and was participating in 3 Major Responses. To create stretch capacity for a potential protracted response we activated an out-of -hours Virtual Incident Control Centre. Roles: Incident Director, Virtual Incident Control Centre Manager, Consultants (CCDC/CHP) dialling in to SCGs.Result:PHE EoE successfully participated in three simultaneous Major Incident Responses, using a Virtual Incident Control Centre, demonstrating a sustained major emergency response strategy. The risk passed and the incident was stood down. Key development outcomes:Saving time, travel, and money, feeding into the Sustainability and Climate Change AgendaReducing staff resource requirementsUsing Resilience Direct as a Multi-Agency information sharing platform in a responseConclusion:Key development outcomes are being shared with PHE projects:Embedding Resilience DirectIncident Control Centre DevelopmentSustainability and Climate Change
