This is the area of work that is most visible to the public. It is where people see fire appliances responding to incidents and dealing with fires, attending road traffic collisions, and other rescue situations, often on the county's roads.

To enable Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service (DFRS) to respond to incidents, the county has been split into two areas. These are split along council boundaries and are:

  • North Area - includes: Chesterfield Borough, North East Derbyshire District, Bolsover District Derbyshire Dales District and High Peak Borough councils
  • South Area - includes: Derby City, South Derbyshire District, Amber Valley Borough and Erewash Borough councils

The response area of work for DFRS also includes making sure the response of the service is matched to identified needs in local communities, such as large industrial premises, historic buildings or areas of high population, and making sure that an effective operational response is maintained at all times.

Response also takes into consideration researching operational response nationally to make sure that good practice is taken into account and developing that to meet the needs of local communities.

Fire Stations

To cover the county, DFRS has a total of 31 fire stations based in strategic areas to cover the risk of the local area. To find out more about a station, click on the link below.
