Get Prepared

The Wellington region is an awesome place to live, but it’s a little wild. We often experience earthquakes, storms, flooding and landslides. We’re also at risk from tsunamis.

These emergencies have similar impacts.  It would be hard to get around, hard to communicate with loved ones and hard to get access to the essentials.

We’ve outlined the things you can do to prepare your household and community get through the challenging days safely, and as comfortably as possible.
