  • Respond to instructions.

  • Remain calm and leave as quickly as possible.

  • Gather family and pets together.

  • Use the transport made available.

  • Take with you:

  • Your "Emergency Pack".

  • Change of warm clothing and blankets

  • Toiletries and everyday medicines

  • If appropriate, baby clothing, nappies and associated toiletries

  • Special foods

  • Important documents, immediate valuables and important telephone numbers of friends and relatives

  • Baskets or cages and leads for pets

  • Personal items such as glasses, mobile telephone, keys, cash or credit cards

  • Make sure fires are out and turn off gas, water and electricity. Allow adequate ventilation prior to turning them back on.

  • Secure your property.
