Helping you in an emergency

The Norfolk Resilience Forum (NRF) has been set up to provide information to the public to warn and inform about emergencies. Our aim is to make you aware when there is a risk of an emergency and what our planned response will be and also to provide you with information and advice as necessary at the time of an emergency.

We hope you will find this website of assistance and interest.

Evacuation and Home Security are the topics today for our top tips and messages.

Often the message from the Emergency Services during a Major Emergency is to ‘Go In, Stay In and Tune In’ to local radio or TV. In some circumstances you may be required to leave your home and go to a Rest Centre.

If there is a danger in your area you may be asked to leave your home for a short while. This could be due to flooding, chemical incident or other issue. Follow the instructions given to you by the emergency services. The Local Authority will open up Rest Centres for you to go to until your home is safe to return to. If it is safe to do so you should take your emergency pack with you.

Local Authorities have designated Rest Centres that can be opened if large numbers of residents are required to leave their homes. Rest Centres are likely to be public buildings such as village halls as they have the relevant facilities.

Food and water will be available at the Rest Centre as well as an area to sleep.

Some Rest Centres accept pets, although not all. Ensure that they are in suitable pet carriers.

Home Safety:
Remember to close and lock all windows and doors when you leave the house. Make your house look like someone is home – put lights on timers in different rooms and leave a radio on. This should help to deter any burglars.

If you are at home and in the garden ensure you can see all the windows you have left open – don’t give burglars any opportunity.

Property mark your possessions – a simple post code and house number or a DNA style product for more valuable items – check out the details on the Norfolk Police website Home Security section.

Ensure your do not leave tools lying around and available for thieves – lock them away in your shed or your garage.

When at home ensure you lock up your cycles and don’t leave them insecure in the garden.

Consider locking your cycle, lawn mower and BBQ together in the shed – use your bike lock and chain and consider a ground anchor.
