Personal evacuation plans

Preparing for an emergency that impacts on you or your home will assist in reducing the stress during the emergency.

There are simple and practical steps you can take to protect yourself, the people you love, and the things you value most.


  • Talk through what to do with all family members and develop a plan together
  • This plan needs to include everyone in your household, including your pets
  • Identify a meeting point in advance that the family is aware of
  • Have an emergency kit already packed with some essentials including any required medication
  • Practice your plan
  • Have a contact person for you or your family to call to let them know.
