For travel

Disasters don't always happen when you are at home. It is important to consider emergency preparedness into your travel plans if you are going away.


Travel Tips:
  1. Research the local hazards of your destination
  2. Familiarise yourself with local plans for these hazards
  3. Find out where you need to go to get assistance should you need to evacuate.
It is still important to consider basic survival items while travelling such as:
  • Torch and radio with spare batteries
  • Any special needs such as hearing aids and spare batteries, glasses or mobility aids
  • Emergency water and easy-to-carry food rations such as energy bars and dried foods in case there are delays in reaching a Civil Defence Centre, or a place where you might find support. If you have any special dietary requirements, ensure you have extra supplies
  • First aid kit and essential medicines
  • Essential items for infants or young children such as formula and food, nappies and a favourite toy
  • Change of clothes (wind/waterproof clothing and strong outdoor shoes)
  • Toiletries – towel, soap, toothbrush, sanitary items, toilet paper
  • Blankets or sleeping bags
  • Face and dust masks
  • Pet supplies.
