General Advice Minimize

    ·  In an emergency try to remain calm and reassure others


    ·  Check for injuries. Attend to your own injuries first so you are then able to help others


    ·  Ensure your family members and neighbors are safe, especially children, the elderly or those who are living alone


    ·  During an emergency, watch your television or listen to your radio for information


    ·  Follow the advice of the emergency services


    ·  If it is dark, check for damages using a flashlight. Do not light a match — there could be gas in the air


    ·  If you smell gas, turn off the main gas valve if it is safe to do so, and quickly move everyone outside


    ·  Call and let someone know you are safe. Minimize other calls unless the situation is life threatening to avoid overloading phone lines


    ·  Use a landline if mobile networks are down


    ·  Make sure pets are safe and have food and water
