Why will you need to walk home?
After a large earthquake in Wellington, road and rail links could be cut off for a week or longer.
If this happened on a weekday, the city’s 80,000 daily commuters are likely to have to travel home on foot.
If you commute into the city, your only option may be to walk home.
Do you have a Grab Bag?
A grab bag, or getaway kit, is a small backpack of essential items which you can take with you on your walk home.
Make sure your Grab Bag contains comfy shoes, a jacket, water, snacks and other personal items you may need if you have to walk home (e.g. personal medication).
