"Be safe, be prepared" is the message behind a major social media campaign launched this September and supported by all North Wales councils, Welsh Government, the emergency services and some utility companies.
The #30days30waysUK campaign has been running in parts of the UK and in other countries world-wide over recent years and this year it is being supported by the North Wales Local Resilience Forum, a body made up of all organisations involved in dealing with emergencies) is lending its support. The Forum has a duty to warn and inform the public on how to stay safe during emergencies.
One message will be issued each day during September on a wide range of issues, including how to deal with flooding, staying safe in the home, awareness of cyber-bullying, fire safety, tips on driving in wintry weather and where to find the latest information about roadworks and traffic alerts.
Councillor Richard Mainon, Cabinet Lead Member for Corporate Services and Strategic Direction: “Organisations across North Wales work together throughout the year to help residents prepare for emergencies such as flooding, winter weather and storms, but also on issues such as protecting your home and your personal safety.
“The Council is pleased to be supporting a campaign like this, as it’s a great opportunity to send home those messages again and we hope residents find them useful and take steps to make themselves safer and better prepared to deal with emergency situations”.
