Ainslie Ryder from Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO)

There are still a couple of spaces left in the workshop tomorrow night! Head to www.getprepared.nz... to register.
---------------------
Disruptions can happen at any time! Whether it’s the seasonal flu, the power being out a couple of days, or a significant event like the big quake, you can plan for disruptions to help minimise the impact on your business. This workshop steps through some key considerations for you and your staff so you will be better prepared in the event of a disruption.

Upper Hutt business owners or a staff representative are invited to join us for the workshop from 5:30pm on Tuesday the 22nd of October for drinks and nibbles at Expressions Whirinaki Arts and Entertainment Centre. There will be an opportunity to explore the Beyond the Cordon exhibition prior to the workshop commencing at 6pm.

Poll: How prepared are you for a quake and tsunami?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

About 1000 deaths, thousands of injuries and extensive destruction from Wellington up the east coast of the North Island - this will be the result of a tsunami triggered by an 8.9 earthquake in the Hikurangi subduction zone under a scenario presented by GNS Science.
The scenario, in a report prepared for the purpose of developing a response plan, is considered serious and credible, but comes with the obvious caveat that there is no way of telling what any earthquake or tsunami would look like. How prepared are you for a quake and tsunami?

Challenge the unspoken rules

White Ribbon

A challenge facing too many young men is the sense that they have to live up to the unspoken rules of masculinity – clichés such as “boys don’t cry” and “toughen up”.

White Ribbon encourages everyone to challenge the unspoken rules, so we can let boys and young men enjoy their individuality and define themselves as men who have respectful relationships with themselves and their partners – creating happier, healthier communities for us all.
