Preparing your home

Protect yourself, your family and home even before an emergency takes place.

There is information and help available from the emergency services (Police, Fire and Rescue Service and Ambulance), the County Council, your local council and others, but there is much you can do to help yourself be prepared until help arrives.

If you are prepared for possible risks, you can reduce the impact on your home, yourself and your family. There are many ways to help prepare with ideas and information below.

See our Household emergency plan below for assistance.
