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.

We're to keen to know if pot plant and garden thievery is still a common problem and what people are doing about it.
If you've had a pot plant or something else taken from your garden in the last year and would like to share, could you please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your neighbourhood and a quick recap of what was taken and how it happened.
We'd love to hear from you!
