Early Childhood Education Emergency Planning Workshop - Wellington

Date: Monday 6th May 2024

Time: 3:00pm - 5:00pm

Location: Wellington Region Emergency Management Office, 2 Turnbull Street, Thorndon

Would you and your staff be confident in an emergency? Do you have a plan, and more importantly have you practiced it recently?

We are holding a free workshop for Early Childhood Education Centres in Wellington City to come together to discuss your emergency plans.

This workshop is an opportunity for ECEs to share challenges and solutions and get advice from our Emergency Management Advisors.

It aims to help ECEs plan for significant events such as earthquake, tsunami, armed intruders and to share ideas and network around emergency planning.

This is an opportunity for Centre Managers, Directors, Health & Safety Representatives or Leads to:

  • Share solutions, practical advice and learnings from recent events.
  • Discuss your current plans with emergency management professionals.
  • Learn more about our local hazards and important planning information including lessons learnt from the Christchurch Earthquake, Christchurch Mosque Attack and Cyclone Gabrielle.

Hope to see you there as we build safer and more resilient ECEs and communities together. Refreshments will be provided!

Places are limited to a maximum of 25 people attending each session. This workshop is endorsed by the Ministry of Education.
