Returning to Property

Following an evacuation from your property you will be told when it is safe to return to your property.

Once you are told it is safe to return to your property:

  • As soon as you return home, open windows to provide fresh air
  • Make arrangements to have gas reconnected - DO NOT attempt this yourself
  • Follow advice from your electricity supplier regarding reconnection or use of electricity. Check that appliances have not been left on when supply was disconnected.
  • Follow any advice from the water company with regard to turning water back on / using it again

Further advice on the reconnection of utility supplies following an emergency can be obtained from
