Building managers and owners should have an Emergency Management Plan in place for their building and practice it regularly.

Emergency in the CBD

Newcastle's central business district (CBD) is located adjacent to the Hunter River and the Pacific Ocean. It includes residential, commercial and coastal areas.

Planning for Emergencies

There is an Australian Standard that provides procedures for the safety of people in buildings, structures and workplaces during emergencies.

Stay In

In most circumstances, the best thing for you to do is stay where you are.

Tune In

In an emergency you can tune into your local radio station for advice and details about the current emergency situation.
