Southampton City Council's Emergency Planning Unit works with the other responders within Southampton to help increase emergency preparedness within the city. Even though we can’t prevent some emergencies happening, we can plan ahead to minimise their impact.
These pages highlight some of the key risks visible to the City of Southampton, explaining how we work alongside the emergency services and other agencies to prepare for potential emergencies.
Even though we’re working to be prepared, there are things you can do to help keep yourself and your family safe and your home more resilient, should an emergency occur. In these pages we’ve outlined simple steps to help you prepare. A few minutes thinking about it now could make a big difference to the outcome of the emergency for you and your family.
Children can also prepare for emergencies and in the young persons section there are links to games that test what you would do in an emergency.
Finally, businesses can increase their resilience ensuring that should an emergency occur, they suffer as little disruption as possible.
Thank you for taking the time to explore these pages and please make sure yourself and your family are well-prepared.
