Emergency Plan - Advice to Residents

HOW TO COPE WITH MAJOR EMERGENCIES

THINK FIRST AND LET COMMON SENSE TELL YOU WHAT YOU SHOULD DO.

Remember that in a power cut mobile phones may not work, but phones that do not have to be plugged into an electric socket will probably still work.

FOR WIDESPREAD FAILURE OF WATER, ELECTRICITY, GAS OR PHONE SERVICES, SEVERE WEATHER, FLOODING, PUBLIC HEALTH, DROUGHT OR STRUCTURAL DAMAGE -

FOLLOW THE ADVICE GIVEN IN THE GOVERNMENT BOOKLET ‘PREPARING FOR EMERGENCIES’ THAT WAS DELIVERED TO ALL HOUSEHOLDS IN THE COUNTRY:




GO IN
To the nearest safe building (if you are not already at home)

STAY IN
The emergency services will expect to collect you from there if any evacuation is needed

TUNE IN
To TV or radio stations for news (use a battery radio or a car radio)

TUNE YOUR BATTERY RADIO TO ONE OF THE LOCAL RADIO STATIONS AND LISTEN TO THE INFORMATION THEY WILL BE GIVING OUT:

Sovereign Radio – 107.5 on FM
BBC Southern Counties Radio – 104.5 on FM
BBC Radio 4 – 93.5 on FM
