Major Incident

In the event of a major incident in the city centre or bay area, messages from South Wales Police will be sent via the recognised communication methods, telling you which area and sectors(s) are affected and the appropriate action to be taken.


Follow the advice communicated by South Wales Police.


If it becomes necessary to evacuate, initiate your own contingency plans, assemble your staff and communicate the appropriate action to be taken.


  • listen to the alert messages from South Wales Police - don't panic!
  • consider the impact on your organisation, the use of any plans you might have prepared to assist you in dealing with the problem
  • act on the advice given by South Wales Police, communicate your intentions throughout your organisation and ensure that everyone clearly understands what is required


Remember - safety is paramount, so:

  • don't place yourself or anyone else in further danger
  • don't take unnecessary risks
  • don't return until South Wales Police say that it is safe to do so


For further information or advice please contact the emergency management team.
