If you're evacuated in an emergency, the emergency services will direct you to a community place of safety.
We've set up the community places of safety scheme so that you'll have somewhere to go for temporary shelter in an emergency like a flood or a gas leak.
We'll send staff to the place of safety to support everyone who has been evacuated.
The place of safety will ideally have:
- 24 hour access
- disabled access
- basic kitchen facilities
The place of safety may be open for up to 8 hours. If it's still not safe for you to return home after this time, we'll find alternative accommodation for you.
