An emergency is a serious, unexpected and often dangerous situation that requires immediate action. This includes danger to life, health, property and/or the environment. The purpose of this web page is to provide information to people about planning for, reporting, managing and recovering from an emergency such as a fire, flood, storm or very hot weather.

These pages bring together a range of resources from a range of services. Wherever possible, internet links direct people to both the English and Chinese. Where the resources are provided in languages other than the most common languages, a third internet link is provided.
