It’s going to be a looooooong hot Summer!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
