Emergencies and emergency services


We have procedures in place to cope with the impact and effects of any kind of major emergency situation.

They are designed to meet the needs of people in the Stirling Council area affected by any type of emergency, for example:

  • transport or industrial accidents
  • loss of electricity (dial 105) / water / gas
  • any other sudden and unexpected incident.

The plans are flexible and allow for an appropriate response depending on the scale, duration and impact of an emergency. 

Emergency Services

These plans have been developed through working closely with our partner organisations, such as

  • Police Scotland who offer general policing information, advice and support, news updates and a 'Have Your Say' facility.
  • Scottish Fire & Rescue Service who provide fire and other specialist emergency cover. This includes a range of information on administration, operations, safety advice, recruitment, and contacts .


Out of hours emergencies

For out of hours emergencies, please phone the Stirling Council Contact Centre on 0845 277 7000.
