What to do before a landslide and if you think one is about to happen.
Floods, storms, severe weather, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunami and landslides can disrupt our lives, damage property and cause serious harm. The good news is, it’s easy to make sure you, and the people you care about, are ready to get through. Have a chat with your family and friends, and work out what you’ll do in these situations…
Make a plan with your family that includes what you’ll do if you can’t get home, who can help you and who might need your help.
The EQ Recovery Learning website is part of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. We work with organisations and groups across recovery, including the private sector, community organisations, social enterprise and government, to bring together the collective learning from the Canterbury earthquakes.
Your local Civil Defence Group has tsunami zone maps and regional advice. Make sure you know where to go, whether you are at home, at work or out and about.
