Here at Neighbourhood Support we know first hand that communities that stay connected and prepared fare better in emergencies than those without a plan.
For the month of October, we want to see how you tackle emergency preparedness. From getting first aid training to putting together a grab n’ go bag with survival essentials, a little bit of planning goes a long way to make sure you can get through any situation.
This month also coincides with International Day of Disaster Reduction on October 13th and New Zealand’s national earthquake drill and tsunami hikoi, ShakeOut, on Thursday, October 17th at 1.30pm.
Let us know how you’re preparing for anything in your home, at work or in your community by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:
