Emergency planning

Our Emergency Planning service is in place to make sure that we are able to respond to any incident in a swift, combined and controlled manner. We work with the emergency services and Derbyshire County Council's Emergency Planning Unit using a joined up, county wide approach.

Preparing emergency plans

We have multi agency and local plans in place to deal with major incidents. The plans are regularly revised, exercised and updated.

Can anyone see the plans?

No, the plans contain personal details of persons who will be required in the event of a major incident.

What constitutes a major incident?

The lead officer for relevant services in liaison with the County Council decide whether to declare a major incident. This would depend on the nature, scale and location of the incident.
