Have you considered how to help protect yourself, your family and home in the case of an emergency such as flooding, severe weather, snow, power outages or evacuations?
‘Don’t be scared. Just be prepared’ that’s the message as Blackburn with Darwen Council urges residents to get prepared and make a plan.
The Council’s website contains a wealth of information to help you plan and emergency numbers you can note down.
Being prepared does not require any special knowledge, only a few minutes of your time and a discussion with your family members to agree what you will do.
This will mean your family and home are better protected should anything happen.
The Council has also produced this animation, which advises on steps you can take to prepare in case of flooding.
