Ready for Severe Weather

Throughout times of extreme weather, we want to make sure that residents and visitors know what to do to stay safe.

On this site, you will find helpful information and answers to some of your questions about preparing for severe weather and how the council will respond during this time.

Don't feel isolated when severe weather hits. There are plenty of ways for you to get the latest information on council services and disruptions.

You can plan ahead by staying informed – and there are some really easy ways to do that

  • Visit our closures and disruptions page to find out about school or facility closures and disruptions to our services such as repair services, bin collections etc
  • The most efficient way for schools to inform parents of any closure is through their Groupcall text message and email service.  Please make sure that your school has up-to-date contact details from you. Headteachers will make the decision as early as possible on the night before or the day of the closure and will contact you once this is confirmed.  Messages from Groupcall will be automatically sent to your mobile phone and/or email account
  • Follow Fife Council on Facebook and Twitter. All winter updates will appear as they happen, direct to your mobile phone or computer
  • Tune in to your local radio stations: Kingdom FM (95.2 & 96.1), Forth One (97.3) and Tay FM (96.4 &102.8) will have all the latest updates

If you need emergency help, speak to an advisor by calling us on 03451 550011 from Mon-Fri, 8 am-6 pm or 03451 550099 between 6 pm-8 am on weekdays, at weekends & on public holidays.

NHS has lots of information to help you through this time of the year.  When you prepare for winter, you are not just helping yourself and your loved ones, you're helping the NHS too.

The Scottish Government has information and advice on its Ready Scotland website about getting ready for extreme weather at your home, on the roads and in your community.

Take a look at the Police Scotland website for local travel advice.

The Traffic Scotland website will keep you up to take with issues across the country and the Met Office has the latest weather information. To keep up to date with the latest train information go to Scotrail.
