Emergency Evacuation

  • image of man rushing to evacuateIf the Police ask you to leave your home, please don't argue.
  • Their responsibility is your safety and they would not ask you to leave if it was not vital.
  • They will probably ask you to go to a reception centre. If you decide to go anywhere else, for example to relatives, let someone know, so you can be accounted for.
  • Don't worry if you are sick, frail or disabled - special arrangements will be made for you.
  • If you have elderly or disabled neighbours, check that they are all right or inform the Emergency Services that they require assistance.
  • If there is time, take along any medicines, warm clothes, any special foods, personal documents, immediate valuables and baskets and leads for pets.
  • Before you leave, make sure fires are out, switch off gas and electricity and lock up.
