Home Emergency Plan

Emergencies can affect the County with little or no notice.  Being prepared can help reduce the effects on your families’ lives, reduce the need for help from others and enable you to support the vulnerable in your community.

Disruption to essential services such as water and electricity, to regional and national travel and telecoms are all ways an emergency and can affect our busy everyday lives.

Keep your plan and other important information in a safe place that you will find again quickly. 

If you have children in your household, or others who need help with understanding what to do, you could get them to write and draw their own plans, to help them learn about emergency events
