Preparing for severe weather

Severe weather can cause a range of problems.  Snow, floods and strong winds can impact on our daily lives such as getting stuck indoors, losing phone communications, power or water supply.

It is important to know what to do to prepare for times of severe weather.

We have produced a leaflet – available to download from the related files panel on this web page – which provides useful tips on how to prepare for severe weather in your home, on the move and in your community.
