Severe weather can strike quickly and cause major disruption to our homes, families and communities.
The good news is that, with a few simple steps, it’s easy to prepare for emergencies.
We are working with the UK and Scottish governments to help people to be prepared for sudden snow, storms, flooding and other winter emergencies:
During severe weather
- Check on neighbours, family and friends - especially those who live alone - to see if they need help
- Clear snow or ice from pathways of those who can’t do it themselves
Prepare young people for snow and ice with the collection of wintry activities in our teaching resource, and the Education Scotland emergencies resource.
