  • Know how to turn off your power, water and gas.
  • Look at the last yellow page in the centre of your phone book for your community emergency centre.
  • Know what the threats are - and what they will do to you.
  • Don't go sightseeing.
  • Plan how you will survive without power, phone, food, water and the emergency services.
  • Know what you will take if you have to evacuate.
