How to prepare for a Sydney siege: First, don’t panic.
There are many people who can help you out and there are a lot of resources available online to help you with everything from how to dress for a hostage situation, how to get food to your loved ones, what to wear and where to go, how long you can stay, how many people you can have and how much money you can get.
There is also a dedicated helpline for Sydney hostage rescue called ABCS.
These are just a few things that can help.
It is not a job for the faint of heart and you need to take all of these steps.
If you are not ready for a siege, you will not survive.
So don’t be too panicked.
Get out of your comfort zone.
Don’t get too attached to your family, friends or pets.
The only way you will be able to stay alive is if you keep your cool and don’t get carried away.
It can be very tempting to just sit back and wait for the inevitable.
That is not what you want to do.
If a siege happens, don´t be afraid to ask your neighbours for help.
Get help if you need it.
Get a group of people together and have some fun together.
If the siege is going to happen, you need a good plan.
Don´t make plans to escape, because if you don´T have a plan, it will be too late.
Make sure you have food, water and shelter.
If your loved one is in an evacuation centre, you can find out how to contact them here.
If someone is in need, donât hesitate to call the police.
You will have a better chance of surviving if you call the authorities first.
If people are outside of the evacuation centres, make sure they are safe.
Do not take them for a walk or to the shops.
You should always keep your distance.
If anyone is in a vehicle, please do not take it.
People can die in an escape.
Donât make people run.
Get the help you need.
Don.t. let the hostage takers take you.
If they do, call the ABCS or ABCs NSW helplines and you will receive a call back with the location of the centre.
They are open from 9.00am to 6.00pm.
Get an ambulance.
Do you want an ambulance to be able arrive in time to save you?
There are plenty of ambulance services available to help, and you can also call them directly from the centre if you are in a crisis.
Get your loved or family member to the centre and get a transport vehicle ready to take them to the safe place.
If there is a siege going on, be prepared to be surrounded.
A siege can become so intense that people will become exhausted, so if you think you might be in a siege and you are too exhausted to drive, consider taking your loved and family member or friend to a safe location.
Do NOT leave your loved family or friends.
The police and ambulance will be there to take care of them.
If that is not possible, you could try to call an ambulance, but this is not something that can be done at a hostage-rescue centre.
The best way to make sure that you are safe and get the help that you need is to call a dedicated crisis line.
Call 1800 333 000 and speak to a trained counsellor or ambulance crew member.
They will be waiting for you in the emergency room.
Once you have contacted them, they will try to arrange for you to be taken to the hospital.
It may take a while but the staff will be willing to do their best.
Don`t wait until it is too late to call them.
Call the ambulance.
If necessary, you should be able contact the police and ask them to take you to the ambulance and pick you up.
This is the only way to get a taxi and it will take about 15 minutes.
You can also get your loved member to a secure location such as a secure room at a safe house or a hospital.
If all else fails, you might want to call your local police station or fire station to report a hostage incident.
Remember, if you do not speak to them before calling for help, you may be in danger of getting yourself and your loved partner into a situation where they will need to call for help themselves.
The ABCS can be contacted by calling 1800 333 0000.
