Planning for this service is undertaken by North Yorkshire County Council. The County Council emergency planning unit has the responsibility to plan for a wide variety of potential emergencies and incidents on behalf of the Council and the six districts in North Yorkshire, as well as supporting regional and national responses to severe events.
Under the Pipeline Safety Regulations 1996, councils and their partners from the emergency services and public utilities have arrangements in place to respond to emergency incidents involving a major gas pipeline.
