Be Prepared

Just like everywhere in the world Gloucestershire faces many risks. These could be local risks such as business storing chemicals (legally and illegally), wide area such as flooding or National such as Pandemic Flu or Severe Space Weather.

Keep informed of the risks

As part of the risk assessment process, we considers the likelihood and impact of a range of hazards occurring.

Are you ready for the weather this summer?

Hot weather is something many people look forward to but it’s worth remembering that warm

spells can pose health risks for some people. It’s important to protect yourself and others

from too much sun or heat, to carry water when travelling and to think of those, such as

young children or older people, who may not cope as well in the heat.

Preparing Your Business

Preparing Your Community

Community resilience is about communities and individuals harnessing local resources and expertise to help themselves in an emergency.

Be Prepared

If you are not involved in the incident, but are close by or believe you may be in danger, in most cases the advice is:

go inside a safe building;
stay inside until you are advised to do otherwise; and
tune in to local radio or TV for more information.

If you find yourself in the middle of an emergency, it is important to:

• make sure 999 has been called if people are injured or if there is a threat to life;
• not put yourself or others in danger;
• follow the advice of the emergency services;
• try to remain calm and think before acting, and try to reassure others; and
• check for injuries – remember to help yourself before attempting to help others.
