Derby city centre - planning for your safety

Last updated 28th July, 2016

If an emergency affects Derby city centre such as a fire, an accident, a chemical spillage or a terrorist threat it may be necessary to evacuate all, or part of, the city centre. Being better informed and prepared can significantly reduce the risks of being affected by an emergency and will help you know what to do should an emergency occur.

The city centre has been divided into emergency zones which would be used in a serious incident to provide advice to people in that area. You could be advised to shelter indoors and in other cases, you could be advised to evacuate your building and the city centre. If you live or work in the city centre, we advise that you print a copy of the Derby City Centre leaflet and keep it to hand.


We have also produced a guide to folding the leaflet so you can carry it in your purse or wallet.

Make sure you know what zone your home, office, place of work or car parking space is in.
