Working from the Same Page: Consistent Messages for CDEM is written to assist those responsible for developing and providing civil defence emergency management information to the general public. The document contains nationally agreed information on specific hazards and the actions that individuals, families and communities can take to reduce, prepare for and protect themselves from the effects of major disasters.
Find information for individuals and communities how to get ready for the impacts of disasters and New Zealand natural hazards.
Get Ready, Get Thru
Detailed information for individuals and communities on our hazards and how to get ready is available in nine languages - Maori, Samoan, Tongan, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Korean, Hindi, Arabic and English.
What's the Plan, Stan?
What’s The Plan Stan? is a resource for teaching Civil Defence in schools and for kids to learn about disasters.
MCDEM are currently looking at creating a new website to replace the websites above. If you have any feedback, please email us at email@example.com
Earthquake and tsunami public education resources
Posters and social media sharables helping to explain tsunami. What are they, where do they come from, how do you prepare?
A ‘toolbox’ of resources for Civil Defence Emergency Management professionals who wish to engage with marae-centric communities and support marae preparedness planning. The toolkit provides guidance on engagement avenues, marae protocol and customs, templates and a workshop guide. The resource also includes hazard and preparedness factsheets in English and Te Reo that can be provided to hauora, kohanga reo, kura kaupapa, marae and runganga (etc). A marae emergency preparedness plan will identify the potential hazards, people from the marae who have specialist skills (such as first aid) and a list of items that will be required to ensure they are adequately prepared.
