What to do if you think a landslide is about to happen

Act quickly. Getting out of the path of a landslide is your best protection.

  • Evacuate and take your Getaway Kit with you. Take your pets with you and move livestock to safe paddocks if you can safely do so.
  • Warn neighbours who might be affected and help those who may need assistance to evacuate.
  • Contact emergency services and your local council to inform them of the hazard.
