What to put in a 'Grab Bag' and useful information on being prepared

Advice on what to do in the event of a major civil emergency.

Our Emergency Planning Unit is keen to register those people who might need specific help in the event of a major incident and need evacuation from their homes; for example, if you are hard of hearing and unlikely to hear a loudhailer evacuation message or are bedridden and unable to leave your home without help. You can complete the register here.
