The Kiwi ‘She’ll be right’ attitude won't save your family's life!
We need to educate and prepare ourselves!!!
As a family member it is our job to ensure the family has an emergency plan along with a getaway life pac. Our buildings are rigorously engineered for earthquakes and other disasters however, we often seem to overlook something so small but important as a grab and run pack for the peace of mind of being prepared-Buy now survive later!
With a little bit of initiative your family can be better prepared for an emergency making the whole experience less traumatic.
You can help the Civil Defence and emergency services by being better prepared if you are evacuated or have to leave and cannot get back to your home.
The civil defence was developed to educate and assist Kiwis in respect to emergencies in our community. We have picked a few links that we think will be of benefit to you in helping you become more knowledgeable and aware of disasters emergencies that can happen anywhere at anytime.
