Best Answer

An air-raid warden would try to help any injured people.

The community would pull together to try to get towns and cities back up and running, to keep their morale high, and not to be defeated by the Germans. The air raid wardens would also call emergency services.

In London - Usually Anderson shelters or the Underground. In November 1938 Sir John Anderson was put in charge of Air Raid Precautions - ARP. He immediately commissioned the engineer, William Patterson, to design a small and cheap shelter that could be erected in people's gardens. It was made from six curved sheets bolted together at the top, with steel plates at either end, and measuring about 6 ½ ft by 4 ½ ft the shelter could accommodate six people. These shelters were half buried in the ground with earth heaped on top. Within a few months nearly one and a half million of these shelters were distributed to people living in areas expected to be bombed. Initially the authorities tried to stop the use of the Underground, but failed.
