The world we live in today would not be possible without transport.

Millions of people around the world rely on transport to get them from 'a to b' on a daily basis. For this reason a transport disruption can have far-reaching and detrimental impacts upon the way we live and the way we do business.

The risks:

  • Extreme weather.
  • Flooding.
  • Fuel spillage.
  • Road accidents.
  • Strike action.

Potential impacts:

  • Physical and psychological casualties.
  • Damage to property and infrastructure.
  • Delays and disruption to essential services.
  • Damage to the economy.
  • Disruption for business and tourism.
  • Environmental contamination.
  • Evacuation and shelter of people affected.

What you can do:

  • Keep an emergency grab bag in case you need to evacuate.
  • Keep a car emergency kit in case you are unable to get to shelter.
  • Check the radio, internet or television before you travel.
  • Have contact numbers for family and friends with you.
