If it is safe to do so, move your vehicle off the road and warn oncoming traffic. Switch on fourway flashers, turn off the ignition, and secure the vehicle.
Call emergency services. If necessary, dial 911.
If damage is extensive, or if there are injuries, call the police.
Do not argue with other individuals, promise to pay for damages, or make any statements admitting fault for the accident.
Record the names, addresses, telephone and driver’s licence numbers of everyone involved in the accident. Record accident details, damages, other drivers and vehicles, and obtain insurance information – including the name of insurance companies, policy number(s), and the name of the broker or agent, along with any witness and police details.
Report damages to your home immediately.
If applicable, a police report should be recorded.
In the event of water damage, do not turn on any electrical switches until your electrical system has been checked. Move items out of a wet basement and away from flooded parts of your home.
If you smell smoke or see flames, immediately get everyone out of the building. Call the fire department from a safe location.
In the event of a break in when you return home, don’t stay. Never confront a burglar or block the exit. Leave and call the police. Have an inventory of your personal contents; this will make it easier to identify your valuables when recovered.
In the event of severe weather, secure all doors and windows. Remain calm in an interior room with no windows. Listen to storm reports and evacuate if told to do so.
