Advice on an emergency

"Go In, Stay In, Tune In"

This is the national advice given to anyone caught up in an emergency situation.

You should "Go Indoors, Stay Indoors and Tune In" to the local radio.

If you are not involved in the incident, but are close by or believe you may be in danger, in most cases the advice is to, Go in, Stay in, Tune in!

Close all doors and windows and stay inside until you are advised the emergency is over. Listen to local radio for information updates.

There may be situations when it's simply best to stay inside and avoid any uncertainty outside.

Local radio

Local radio has a responsibility to support the emergency services in getting real and relevant advice out to the Community. So the Police, Lancashire County Fire and Rescue Service, North West Ambulance Service, and Blackburn with Darwen Council will use radio stations to inform everyone on what to do, where to go and what actions they are taking whilst responding to the incident.
