Emergency and out of hours contact information

If there is an emergency, dial 999 for police, fire or ambulance. You can also dial 112 to contact the emergency services if you are anywhere in the European Union.

Wyre Council operates an out of hours emergency service that allows people to report incidents when our contact centre is closed. 

Outside normal office hours (after 5pm on weekdays, weekends and bank holidays) you should call 01253 891000 and press option 2 to speak to a Duty Officer. You will need to give: 

  • your name 
  • your address 
  • your telephone number 
  • a description of the incident and the location 

Based on the information given, the Duty Officer will arrange the necessary response to deal with the incident. They may call you back if further information is required.  

Please note: Wyre council does not provide an out of hours service for council tax, housing benefit, pest control or noise from neighbours or alarms. These are classed as non-emergencies and should be reported during normal working hours.
