Ready Scotland has developed toolkits to support public communications and engagement on emergency preparedness. 

These toolkits provide assets and suggested captions for you to use, adapt and share on your social media channels. You can either copy these messages directly or customise them to reach your audience.


Hot Weather

We may joke about the weather in Scotland, but heat is a real risk that can affect anyone.

This toolkit contains guidance on coping with the issues hot weather can cause, such as heatstroke, heat exhaustion, and dehydration. 

We appreciate your support in sharing our messages on staying safe in hot weather.


Emergency Kit and Household Plans

We recommend that all households build a small 'emergency kit' as part of their home emergency plan. The following toolkit also contains a link to our home emergency plan template and emergency kit checklist available to download as a PDF or print.


Winter Readiness

We’ve prepared advice and guidance to make sure the people of Scotland have the help and support they need. We appreciate your support in sharing our messages on winter preparedness.



Flooding is a regular occurrence in Scotland and can happen at any time of the year.

We've prepared advice and guidance on staying safe in preparing for and recovering from flooding.


Power Outages

Power cuts and the loss of other utilities can happen at any time and with little warning.

This toolkit contains advice and guidance on preparing for and managing when power outages occur.
