Tips:• Protect your head while evacuating. Roof tiles and other debris may still fall.

Tips:• If you store emergency items in a high place somewhere near your home, make sure that place can be accessed by all. Use ropes, ladders and working together to ensure that everyone can get to safety. Make a plan in advance.
Tips :• As with other hazards it is essential that everyone knows when to evacuate. Make a family and community plan and use all forms of communication at your disposal to ensure everyone in your community knows when to evacuatee.g. sirens, flags, SMS.
