How you can prepare for an emergency

The government is encouraging everyone to think about what you would do if you, or someone close to you, is affected by risks such as flooding, fires, or power cuts.

The get prepared for an emergency website provides simple and effective steps you can take to be more prepared. Taking action in advance will make it easier to manage an emergency, if it does happen.

Five simple things you can do now:

  1. Find out if you are eligible to sign up to your gas, electricity and water supplier’s Priority Service Registers, so companies know that you need additional support
  2. Set a reminder in your phone or make a note on your calendar to check your smoke alarm once a month
  3. Write down important phone numbers on paper such as the number to report a power cut (105) and the numbers of anyone you might want to contact in an emergency
  4. Talk to your children about how and when to call 999 and what they should do if there’s an emergency, such as a fire at home
  5. Check your long term flood risk and sign up for flood and weather warnings
