Risks

As a designated Category 1 responder under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, we carry out risk assessments within our area.

This process involves working with our partners including the emergency services and health community to assess the level of risk for a range of potential hazards within Amber Valley. The types of hazard we are looking at cover a wide range and include the threats to human health, for example caused by a serious outbreak of a new human influenza virus, sometimes called pandemic influenza. We also assess the likelihood of, and potential impacts associated with industrial accidents, flooding, transport accidents, the terrorist threat and serious disruption to supply of fuel, energy, communications and other essential services.

Our joint aim within Derbyshire is to improve our capability to respond to any disruptive challenges and minimise the effects on our communities. We must also ensure that our own services are resilient and can continue to be delivered at the required level.
