At Ready Scotland we believe it’s helpful to think carefully and plan what you would do in an emergency before it happens.
Print this page or download the PDF to create your emergency plan, with key details and contacts in one safe place.
Make sure that you include a copy of your household emergency plan along with your home emergency kit
Home Emergency Plan
If it is not safe to go out, then:
- Go indoors and close all the windows and doors
- Stay indoors
- Stay up to date using radio, TV or online
If there is no power, an FM radio powered by battery, solar or wind-up will keep you informed, including car radios.
Write down your FM radio frequencies in advance too.
If you have to leave home, have an agreed meeting place in advance and consider a local community hub if there is one.
