Emergency advice

Emergency advice

The Hampshire County Council Emergency Planning website gives full details of emergency planning for Hampshire.

Detailed advice and information will also be available from the local borough or district council affected by the emergency situation.

There are people trained and ready to respond to any major emergency, and to co-ordinate the work of the council to try to lessen the effect of the incident on the people, businesses and environment of the district.

Whatever the cause of the emergency incident, the police, fire, ambulance and coastguard services are primarily responsible for dealing with the situation 'on the ground'.

Depending on the scale of the incident the armed services may also be called in to assist.

If an emergency occurs outside of our normal working hours, please see our out of hours service which may be able to help.
