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:
BBC News - Climate change: ‘Clear and unequivocal’ emergency, say scientists
Waikato mum of two, Sheena Thompson, is calling out shopping centres for not having accessible power sockets or private rooms for pumping mums in parenting facilities.
It's not uncommon for mums to pump breast milk in hot cars, cleaning cupboards, shower stalls or in disabled toilets due to a lack of lactation rooms. Are you a mum who's struggled with this?
One performance only - make sure you don’t miss them.
FRIDAY 29 NOVEMBER. LIBERTY CENTRE
