It is a good idea to find out your assembly point and know where to go in the event of a major emergency or disaster beforehand. You can find the emergency assembly point(s) closest to you by entering your city, district, neighbourhood and street here: https://www.turkiye.gov.tr/afet-ve-acil-durum-yonetimi-acil-toplanma-alani-sorgulama.
