Go in, stay in, tune in
If you are not involved in an emergency but are close by, or believe you may be in danger, in most cases:
'Go in' to your home, or other building, if it is safe to do so
'Stay inside' until the emergency is over or you are instructed by the emergency services
'Tune in' to a local radio station or TV news station to hear the latest information about the emergency.
During some emergencies, it may not be safe to 'go in' to a building, for example is there is a fire. Always follow the advice given by the emergency services.
