Get Ready Week 2017


Get Ready Week 2017


We’re supporting Get Ready Week 2017 this week (9-15 October).

Organised by the Ministry of Civil Defence and 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.


Radio

If the power goes out, a solar or battery powered radio (or your car radio) can help you keep up to date with the latest news. In an emergency, tune in to these stations:

• Radio New Zealand

• The Hits

• NewstalkZB

• MoreFM

• Radio Live

Online

For local updates, check your council's website, as well as your local Civil Defence Emergency Management website and social media.

For national updates, follow the Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management on Facebook and Twitter.


Know your neighbours

There's strength in numbers. In an emergency, you can work with your neighbours to get through. Neighbourhood Support Groups bring local people together to create safe, supportive and connected communities. Join Neighbourhood Support at neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz or call 0800 463 444.

Emergency Mobile Alert (coming soon)

Emergency Mobile Alert will be a new way of receiving information about emergencies in your area. If your life, health or property is in danger, Emergency Mobile Alerts can be sent to your mobile, without needing to sign up or download an app. Emergency Mobile Alert is expected to be available by the end of 2017.

Find out more about Emergency Mobile Alert here.

MAKE A PLAN

In an emergency you could be stuck at work, without transport home. Make a plan with your household 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.
