Emergency planning

We work with the emergency services, health services and other agencies to make sure we're as ready as we can be in the event of an emergency or major incident.


Our aim is to make arrangements to protect people and the environment in Derbyshire and reduce the impact on them from an emergency.

We have emergency plans in place to cope with the most likely risks to affect Derbyshire and we have joint training and exercises throughout the year to make sure we're ready.

The Derbyshire Local Resilience Forum is responsible for the overall direction and policies of emergency planning, to ensure the effective delivery of our duties under the Civil Contingencies Act.
