An A4 whiteboard using a whiteboard marker pen can also be very useful.
Alternatively, if you have a tablet/iPad with you that would also be a good way to show your questions, enlarging the type accordingly. Use a clean font such as Calibri or Helvetica.
If you wear PPE
For example a protective face mask – your lip patterns and facial expressions will be hidden so writing things in large clear letters might be the only way to get your message across.
Remember, they may not be able to see you clearly so, if possible, wear brightly coloured clothing.
How do I know they understand me?
They will be able to use their voice to answer your question and explain their situation.
If you are worried about someone:
· In an emergency, please call: 999
· If there is no immediate risk, call the police on: 101
