What if I need to evacuate my home?

There may be times where an emergency occurs and you need to evacuate your home. This may be due to flooding, a fire or incidents causing structural damage. Evacuation is extremely rare but you may only be given limited time to leave your home and so it is better to be prepared for this type of emergency and already have a pre-packed bag available to pick up and go.

If you are evacuated remember to:

  • listen to the emergency services
  • lock your doors
  • take your grab bag with you
  • consider if you have any family or friends who might need to know where you are
  • advise the emergency services of any neighbours who may need assistance
