We're supporting Get Ready Week 2017 (9-15 October)
Organised by the Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management, Get Ready Week is a chance for everyone to take steps to be more prepared.
The theme for Get Ready Week this year is Stay Safe, Stay Informed. Emergencies can happen anywhere, any time, and without warning. Make sure you and the people you care about are ready to get through by knowing the different ways to stay informed.
Find out which radio stations to listen to, which websites and social media to follow and how to get to know your neighbours at www.civildefence.govt.nz/get-ready-week.
Make a plan with your family that includes how you'll stay informed, what to do if you're not at home, who can help you and who might need your help at www.happens.nz/make-a-plan.
