When people talk about emergencies our minds tend to turn to examples of huge national or global catastrophes such as terrorism, tsunamis or perhaps a pandemic.
But being prepared for smaller ‘everyday emergencies’, such as power cuts, burst water mains, gas leaks, transport strikes, road closures etc, is just as important as they can happen any day and affect us all at one time or another
September is National Preparedness Month and we’re encouraging people to ‘be prepared, not scared’ by sharing information, advice and resources as part of ‘30 days, 30 ways’ – the UK’s preparedness and community resilience campaign.
The aim of 30 Days, 30 Ways UK is to help people and businesses to plan for a range of emergency situations, big and small, to boost their resilience.
You can get involved by following 30 days, 30 ways on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram and sign up for daily emails on the 30 days 30 ways website.
