Should you witness or be involved in an explosion and you are in a position to do so:

  • Call 999 and alert the emergency services
  • Go inside, to a room furthest away from the incident
  • Shut all doors and windows to prevent fumes entering the building
  • Stay indoors and tune into the local radio station, listening for advice on what to do next
  • If you are at home, or know the building you are in, prepare to turn off gas, electric and water supplies
  • Prepare to be evacuated to a safe place, collect your Emergency Grab Bag
  • Follow the advice and instructions given to you by the emergency services
