How prepared are we as a community or individual for the next manmade or natural disaster? Will you cope when disaster strikes? Be prepared ... disaster can strike at any time and often without warning.

You and your family could be on your own for up to three days, maybe more. Know what you have to do before you have to do it.

Preparing for a disaster can be quite simple and a good place to start is to visit www.getthru.govt.nz.

 

Alternatively, pick up a copy of "Are You Prepared" at any Council Office. It has easy to use information on:

  • Developing a household emergency plan.
  • What you require for your emergency survival kit.
  • What yu need for your getaway kit.
  • Preparing for different kinds of disasters.

There is no "Civil Defence Army" in New Zealand and people must accept responsibility to prepare for the next big one and be able to look after themselves for up to three days without assistance, other than from their neighbours and local community.The role of the Ruapehu District Council is to:

  • Ensure that it is able to function to the fullest possible extent, even though this may be at a reduced level, during and after an emergency.
  • Plan and provide for Civil Defence emergency management within its District.

The Civil Defence and Emergency service aim is:

  • To increase community awareness, understanding and participation in emergency management.
  • To enhance local capabilities to manage emergencies.
  • To enhance local capabilities to recover from disasters.

During a Civil Defence emergency, please listen to your local radio station for instructions
