Coping with an Emergency Evacuation

Coping with an Emergency Evacuation

Emergency evacuation of houses will only happen in extreme circumstances.

  • If the police ask you to leave your home, don’t argue. They are only concerned for your safety. They will know the dangers and risks better than you.
  • They will ask you to go to a Reception/Rest Centre. If you decide to go somewhere else, let the police know, so you can be accounted for.
  • Don’t worry if you have special needs, arrangements will be made for you by those responding.
  • If there is time, take along medicines, warm clothes, any special foods, personal documents and immediate valuables - food, baskets, leads etc for your pets.
  • If you have time, before you leave - make sure fires are out, switch off water and electricity and then lock up.
