Other types of emergencies

Wandsworth is the largest inner London Borough. It is a safe place to live and work, but emergencies can occur. If you find yourself involved in an emergency try to remain calm. 

  • If people are injured, or if there is a threat to life or property, telephone 999 to alert the Emergency Services
  • Check yourself for injuries - remember to tend to yourself before trying to help others
  • Move to a safe place and do not put yourself or others in danger
  • Follow the advice of the emergency services

All staff responsible for responding to emergencies receive regular training. We also hold emergency exercises throughout the year.

Our 24 hour Emergency Control can be contacted on 020 8871 6900.
