Emergency planning

We work with the police, NHS, fire service and other councils to ensure all the necessary plans are in place to deal with emergencies in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Further information

This formal arrangement exists to make sure we are appropriately prepared to respond to any emergency incident which may have a significant impact on communities. If you run a business in the city centre, you can play your part by ensuring you have an evacuation and contingency plan in place to deal with an emergency. 

Where will details of an emergency be broadcast?

We will publish details of any emergency on our website, and our corporate Twitter and Facebook pages.

A number of local media outlets will broadcast details of emergencies:

  • BBC Radio Leicester 104.9FM
  • Leicester Sound 105.4FM
  • Sabras Sound Ltd 1260MW
  • BBC Radio Leicester - Asian Network 104.9FM
