City evacuation zones and alerts

There are plans in place to evacuate any part of the city if there is a major incident.

To help the emergency services deal with an incident in the city centre, the area has been divided up into zones.

If a large scale evacuation is needed, the Police will coordinate this and will alert people through

  • local media
  • roadside message boards
  • radio systems in shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs
  • public address systems in shopping centres, bus and railway stations.

You would also find up to date information through our Twitter and Police Scotland Twitter.
