Get Ready

The chances of you, your family and members of your community being caught up in a major emergency are low. However, in an emergency situation, whether it is a major incident or a localised event, it may be some time before the emergency or support services can help you.

It is important that you, your family and the community in which you live make the necessary preparations to take care of yourselves.

Welcome to the Major Emergencies in Dumfries and Galloway website

This website, designed through the Dumfries and Galloway Major Emergency Scheme, provides people in Dumfries and Galloway with links to specific information on major emergencies. It explains what you, your family and your community can do to:

  • Prepare for major emergencies
  • Protect yourself from major emergencies
  • Recover effectively from major emergencies

In the event of a major emergency, the latest information will appear in the Latest News section of this website; giving you advice and keeping you up to date with what is going on in the area.
