Planning for an Evacuation

EvacuationIn certain situations, you may be asked to leave your home by the emergency services. 

Before an evacuation occurs it would be useful to:

  • plan places where your family will meet, both within and outside of your immediate neighbourhood;
  • 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;
  • if you have a car, keep a half tank of fuel in it at all times in case you need to evacuate.
