Get Ready Week

Waimakariri District Council is supporting national Get Ready Week.  Get Ready Week is held every year to mark the International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction (13 October). It starts on Monday 9 October and this year's theme is Stay Safe, Stay Informed.

As we are all too well aware in our district, emergencies can happen anywhere, any time, and without warning. The purpose of this promotion week is to make sure you and the people you care about are ready to get through by knowing the different ways to stay informed. 20171009_Get Ready

During the week we’ll be promoting the different ways people can stay informed during an emergency – which radio stations to listen to, which website and social media to follow, the importance of getting to know your neighbours and checking if you can receive Emergency Mobile Alerts. 

Please make sure you check that your supplies of water and food are up to date and that you have enough for at least 3 days or more.  This would be a good time to check your emergency kit and replace any items.  Revisit your emergency plan with your family and make sure you are all on the same page.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page to read key Get Ready messages through the week.
