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.
