Emergencies can happen in an instant with no notice. By taking a few simple steps now you could save yourself time if an emergency occurs.

Preparing Your Business

Even small incidents can impact your normal daily operations.  As a business owner or manager, can you afford not to prepare for disruption?

Preparing Your Community

Community resilience is about communities and individuals harnessing local resources and expertise to help themselves in an emergency.

Be Prepared

If you are not involved in the incident, but are close by or believe you may be in danger, in most cases the advice is:

go inside a safe building;
stay inside until you are advised to do otherwise; and
tune in to local radio or TV for more information.

If you find yourself in the middle of an emergency, it is important to:

• make sure 999 has been called if people are injured or if there is a threat to life;
• not put yourself or others in danger;
• follow the advice of the emergency services;
• try to remain calm and think before acting, and try to reassure others; and
• check for injuries – remember to help yourself before attempting to help others.
