Keeping safe in emergencies
Keeping Safe in Emergencies does not replace any detailed plans you may have for particular emergencies (e.g. Bushfire Survival Plan, FloodSafe Plan). It is very important that you consider the emergencies that you may face and have safety plans completed *before* an emergency. Key bits of information can then be transferred from those plans into the Keeping Safe in Emergencies guide.
If you have a question about how to be better prepared for a particular emergency, you can use the following numbers:
