Chesterfield 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, a senior emergency planning officer works at Chesterfield part time. Support on other issues such as risk assessment (eg, hazardous site plans) is also provided by Derbyshire County Council.
The aim of the service is to prepare emergency plans and make arrangements to protect people and the environment in Chesterfield or reduce the impact on them from an emergency.
We liaise on a regular basis with the police, fire, ambulance and health services in preparing its emergency plans.
Joint training and rehearsals take place with these services and other agencies to ensure that these plans will work.
Visit the Derbyshire Local Resilience Forum for information and advice to help you better prepare if there was an emergency.
If there are any areas of particular interest please contact the senior emergency planning officer, who will be more than happy to give you further details.
