There are UK Government sites like Dealing with Emergencies and UK Resilience.

We have more than that. There's a lot of practical information on the above sites. Feel free to criticise it, but don't pretend it doesn't exist.

I checked out both website links and still was unable to find an adequate list. Although I can see in this link;

http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/HomeAndCommu...ncies/DG_176651

that they are still using the 'preparing for emergencies' logo.



I thought I would try the previous attempt by the UK government for a www.ready.gov type one stop shop to look for a preparedness list but the website isn't available

www.preparingforemergencies.gov.uk

so I decided to UK google the words 'preparing for emergencies'
and found this link

www.preparingforemergencies.co.uk laugh

There are plenty of preparedness lists if you look hard enough but they are usually just part of the local UK Council authority websites tacked on as an after thought.

In the UK there are also no advertisement campaigns to publicise any preparedness websites in the UK to make the folks aware of the issue.

We don't even have any childrens TV shows like we did in the 1970s such as the infamous 'Orlov' anymore. whistle
