It’s going to be a looooooong hot Summer!

  1. Have a Plan. Who is in charge? How will you evacuate your workplace, where is your Assembly Area, how will you account for your co-workers & visitors to site.
  2. Have an emergency kit ready. The NSW SES recommends you include the following – a portable radio with batteries, torch with spare batteries, First aid kit, candles and waterproof matches, important papers including emergency contact numbers, a copy of the Emergency Plan and waterproof bag for valuables. Also include drinking water and snacks if you have children or elderly in the building.
  3. Listen to Alerts. If you hear an alarm always assume it is real until you are told it is a drill. Use a radio to keep up to date with community alerts, read emergency text messages
  4. Stay out of Danger. Look after yourself first. If an area is too dangerous to enter, don’t, if you are injured you can’t help others.
  5. Follow Emergency Services Instructions. Always do exactly as you are told by emergency Services workers – Fire & Rescue, Rural Fire Brigade, Ambulance, Police, SES. They are trained to respond to emergencies, they know what you need to do.
