Evacuating your home

If you need to evacuate your home in the event of an emergency then:

  • listen and comply with instructions from the emergency services
  • account for all family members
  • get your pets together with leads, cages etc
  • take any important items you may need with you, such as mobile phone, credit cards, medication, ID
  • get your ready bag/emergency kit
  • find out, where safe to do so, if neighbours need any assistance.

It is a good idea to consider now where you might go in case you are asked to evacuate your home.

  • if lots of people have to leave their homes then the local authority will provide temporary emergency accommodation
  • you may want to go to a relative or friend who lives outside the evacuation area instead
  • check your home insurance policy as some providers cover for alternative accommodation.
