Major Incident Plan

Bishop Alastair introduces the new Major Incident Plan as follows:

The nature of disasters and emergencies are unpredictable. We never know when, where or in what form they are going to occur. We do know it is important that appropriately trained people can be relied on to respond quickly with the necessary help. Major Incident Plan Chaplains are recognised by the statutory agencies as having a significant role to play in a major incident or emergency within Derbyshire and Derby City.
