Preparing for an Emergency

You never think it will happen to you, but as you know it could any day. From Earthquake to Flood, from Storm to Tsunami. It doesn't matter that it's not a catastrophic event or that your house may still be standing. The fact is that if any disaster event, natural or otherwise, was to occur in your area, you might have to survive without power, water or worse!

If disaster was to occur are you ready? Emergency services will be overwhelmed by calls from people just like you, they will try to manage their priorities that they have been trained in. You will be OK but you may just need to sit tight for a few days.

All New Zealanders are now asked to be prepared to manage on their own - or as a family group - for the first three days after a disaster. It can simply take that long for help to arrive, so making preparations in advance can ensure self-sufficiency and minimise distress.

In the event of an emergency, Neighbourhood Support will work with Civil Defence and other emergency services to bring relief.
