Preparing for Emergencies

I know I shouldn’t laugh.. It’s not very PC, but I thought I’d share this with you…

Catch it while it’s online! The Government are issuing leaflets and doing a website to help prevent terrorists..

I particularly like the “We must be prepared to deal with any emergency, whatever it is or wherever it comes from. And that includes zombie attacks! And zombie pirate attacks! And killer robots! And both at the same time! Are YOU ready?”

Another gem from the spoof site…

“If you find yourself in the middle of an emergency, your common sense and instincts will usually tell you what to do. However, it is important to:

-Really, really fast.
-Follow the advice of the emergency services, unless that advice is something other than “Run”.

Try to remain calm and think before acting, and try to reassure others. Or, trample them in a desperate attempt to flee as the building you’re in is consumed by a radioactive cloud.
-Check for injuries. Here’s a hint: if it’s painful, it’s probably injured. However, hurting when you pee is probably not an injury related to the incident. But get yourself checked out anyway.
