Emergency Service

There is an officer available

  • 24 hours a day
  • 365 days a year

What do we consider to be an Emergency

Problems involving serious events such as

  • fatalities
  • imminent risks to health, or acute pollution of the environment

These types of emergencies do not always happen during office hours so if you think that a emergency situation has occurred you can telephone our main Control Room on 0800 506050.

Although each call is an emergency to the caller, the majority received can be dealt with by advice or referral to a more appropriate service. However, the duty officer will always be available and where appropriate will visit to take the necessary enforcement action.
