Preparing for emergencies

Ten Preparedness Tips

1. Find out what emergencies may affect you – have a look at our London Risk Register to learn more

2. Make a plan with important information you may need in an emergency, such as emergency contact details and phone numbers for your insurance company, utilities etc.

3. Know how to turn off your electricity, water and gas supplies

4. Find out the frequencies for your local radio station(s) and consider buying a wind-up radio so you can tune into the latest news if the power is off

5. Make sure all members of your household carry emergency contact details so you can stay in touch during an emergency

6. Plan for how you would look after your pets if you had to be evacuated from your home (emergency accommodation shelters may not be able to take animals other than assistance dogs)

7. Pack a bag of essential items (see below) you may need during an emergency, or if you have to evacuate your home at short notice

8. Speak to your friends and neighbours to find out if they may need your help during an emergency (especially if they are elderly, have young chilren or pets), and if you can help them prepare

9. Find out the emergency arrangements at your workplace and/or children’s school

10. Learn first aid – this could give you the skills to help relatives, friends and others during an emergency.

You may want to prepare a smaller emergency grab bag to keep in your car, particularly if you are going on a long journey or driving in bad weather conditions.
