Get help and advice in an emergency

Create an evacuation plan

  • Plan places where your family will meet, both within and outside of your immediate neighbourhood
  • If you have a car, keep a half tank of fuel in it at all times in case you need to evacuate
  • Become familiar with alternative routes and other means of getting out of your area
  • If you do not have a car, plan how you will leave if you have to
  • Take your emergency kit unless you have reason to believe it has been contaminated
  • Lock the door behind you
  • Take your pets with you
