Create a household plan
Having a basic plan in place will help keep you safer, connect with loved ones faster, and protect some of your most important assets.
Ensure you have emergency supplies such as food and water stored to help get you through a major disaster.
Store emergency water
Emergency water is the single best thing you can store to be more prepared for a major earthquake. You should have enough to last for 7 days.
Make your home safer
Making your home safer will reduce the damage caused by an earthquake and allow you to stay in your home.
People who live or work in high rise buildings face unique challenges during an earthquake. Learn about what to do before, during and after an earthquake.
Meet your neighbours
Your neighbours are your first source of support following a major disaster, so it’s important to get to know them now rather than later.
A grab bag, or getaway kit, is a small backpack of essential items which you can take with you if you need to evacuate your home or work in a hurry.
After an earthquake, don’t flush! The pipes that take away your wees and poos may be broken, so you’ll need to think about what you can use for an emergency toilet.
