First step to be prepared

If you are evacuated

  • Following instructions from the Emergency Services and the Council
  • Check if your neighbours need any assistance (without putting yourself in danger)
  • Gather family members and pets
  • Take prescribed medicines and other essentials with you
  • Do not return home unless told it is safe.
