Emergency Planning

Chemical accidents, toxic fumes and smoke

If there is an incident involving chemical or toxic fumes or smoke you should:

  • Stay indoors until you are advised to leave by the emergency services
  • Close all doors and windows and block obvious vents
  • Tune in to local media for local announcements
  • Switch off air conditioning, ventilation units and fans
  • Extinguish all naked flames
  • You may need to be evacuated - get an overnight bag ready
