About Ruapehu District Council
Due to its location and environment, New Zealand faces many potential disasters. In some cases, such as a weather-related or volcanic disaster, there may be time for a warning, but an earthquake could strike without warning. All disasters have the potential to cause disruption, damage property, and take lives, so it's vital that you prepare now.
How prepared are we as a community or individual for the next man-made or natural disaster?
Will you cope when disaster strikes? Be prepared ... disaster can strike at any time and often without warning.
Knowing what to do in the event of a disaster can help to keep you and your family safe.
Preparing for a disaster can be quite simple and a good place to start is to visit www.getthru.govt.nz.
Alternatively, pick up a copy of "Are You Prepared" at any Council Office. It has easy to use information on:
Developing a household emergency plan.
What you require for your emergency survival kit.
What you need for your getaway kit.
Preparing for different kinds of disasters.
