Are You Ready?
Major Incidents do occur from time to time. You don’t panic when a light bulb goes out because you know how to replace it. Its always good to be prepared.
Have you ever thought what you would do if you found yourself in a situation that was out of the ordinary? For example, if you were flooded by a burst water main, if you were evacuated from your home following a gas leak in your road or you were stuck in a traffic jam for several hours during a heat wave.
Being prepared in advance means that you will deal with the issue more effectively at the time. If you know what to do in advance then you are more likely to make the right choices – and it can be very easy to prepare a plan for your home and family. Being prepared can help reduce the effects on people’s lives, reduce the need for support from others and enable you to support the vulnerable members of your street and community.
