Preparing your community for an emergency

There are lots of simple things you can do to help prepare your community for an emergency situation, whether it's severe snow, flooding, a flu pandemic or some kind of accident.

Being prepared doesn't mean doing the work of the emergency services - it's all about having the information and resources available to help cope, should the worst happen.

Your community could mean a group of houses, a street, an area or even a whole town. It could be a neighbourhood watch group, a community council, a residents association or just an informal group of neighbours or friends.
