If evacuated from your home, it’s the little things that make a BIG difference:

A bag containing:

  • List of prescription medication (or the actual medication)
  • Toiletries
  • Identity documents
  • First aid kit
  • Radio (wind-up or battery operated)
  • Torch (wind-up or battery operated)
  • Spare batteries
  • Notebook, pen / pencil
  • Spare glasses / contact lenses
  • Mobile phone charger
  • Contact List, including phone numbers
  • Insurance details (policy number / contact details)
  • Spare keys for house / car
  • Anything else

Consider each member of your household, a book to read may help pass the time, children may want a toy or two.

Don’t forget your pets.

  • Lead or carry case
  • Food
  • Bowls
  • Bed / basket

Equipment at a Rest Centre is limited, it is EMERGENCY accommodation, take things that will make you more comfortable.

You could consider joining one of the recognised volunteer organisations.
