is there a gate valve on the hot water draw off from the tank ? normally a round red handle - if yes close this - don't overtighten as they do sheer off inside.

If not, then isolate the cold supply to the tank, by either turning off the mains stop tap - or the tank stop tap which is before the ballvalve , and let the taps run until the water stops.
