Emergency planning

The Emergency Planning service is provided by Derbyshire County Council for the Derby City Council and the other districts and boroughs within Derbyshire. 

We prepare for and deal with a wide range of emergencies such as flooding and other severe weather events, major fires and chemical leaks. We produce contingency plans, organise and deliver training and exercises for those with a role to play in preventing or responding to these types of incidents.

The Derbyshire Emergency Planning team is based at County Hall, Matlock.
