Amber Valley Borough Council has a service level agreement with Derbyshire County Council to undertake its duties in line with the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. As part of this agreement, an Emergency Planning Officer works at Amber Valley for 1.5 days per week. Support on other issues such as risk assessment (e.g. hazardous site plans) is also provided by Derbyshire County Council.

Emergency Planning is part of the Regulations Team based at Amber Valley Town Hall. The aim of the service is to prepare emergency plans and make arrangements to protect people and the environment in Amber Valley or reduce the impact on them from an emergency. These plans are designed to give guidance to local authorities, emergency services and other agencies so they can act quickly to provide support to those involved in a major incident in Amber Valley.

Liaison takes place on a regular basis with the Police, Fire, Ambulance and Health Services in preparing emergency plans. Joint training and rehearsals take place with these services and other agencies to ensure that these plans will work.

Planning for emergencies ensures that we can better communicate and co-ordinate our efforts.

Our service is complementary to, and does not replace that provided by the emergency services.

Out of hours (emergencies only): 01773 841414
