The calorimeter system of LHCb is subdivided into four sub-detectors which provide its longitudinal segmentation: a Scintillator Pad Detector, followed by a Preshower and, then, an electromagnetic, an hadronic calorimeter. After a description of these detectors, procedures developed to calibrate their response are discussed together with the degradation of response observed due to the harsh conditions (high radiation and current levels). First results on the calorimeter performance over the two most productive years of physics data taking, 2011 and 2012 are given.
