What to do in case of emergency

If you find yourself in an emergency situation:

  • make sure 999 is called if people are injured or there's a threat to life
  • don't put yourself or others in danger
  • follow the advice of the emergency services
  • try to remain calm, think before acting and try to reassure others
  • check for injuries, remember to help yourself before attempting to help others

If you're not involved in the incident, but are close by or believe you may be in danger:

  • go inside a safe building
  • stay inside until you're advised to do otherwise
  • tune in to local radio or TV for more public safety advice and information
