Emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. It’s up to you to take steps to make sure you’re prepared.
Make a plan with your family/flatmates/friends to get through an emergency. Think about the things you need every day and work out what you would do if you didn’t have them.
What’s the Plan, Stan?, a free resource to support schools, teachers and students to develop the knowledge and skills to prepare for emergency events.
Find out what to do before, during and after an emergency including earthquakes, floods, landslides, snow, storms, tsunami, and volcanic activity.
The Get Ready website has a list of tsunami evacuation zone maps and regional advice. Make sure you know where to go, whether you are at home, at work or out and about.
If you, or a member of your household, is disabled or has any special requirements that may affect your/their ability to cope in an emergency, follow these steps to get ready.
