Earthquake Preparedness for Apartment Dwellers

Chris Moore from Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO)

🏢Do you live or work in a high rise building in the Wellington region?🏢

Our shaky little capital can be a bit wild at times, and those who live or work in high rise buildings face unique challenges especially during an earthquake.

That's why we have developed (with help from you guys!) some FAQs on how you can get better prepared.

Cutting hair for 50 years

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Lance Barnard might be the oldest barber in Wellington.

“It only feels like yesterday that I was the youngest,” Barnard jokes with a client. A fortnight ago Barnard moved from the barber shop on Courtenay Place where he spent the last 40 years cutting hair, to Cuba Barbers on Cuba Street.

Does anybody know if there has been a barber cutting hair longer than Lance.

Don't forget to change your clocks

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

New Zealand springs forward this weekend as Daylight Saving time begins.
Clocks will go forward by one hour at 2am on Sunday 27 September. Daylight saving time will continue until Sunday 4 April 2020, when clocks will go back by one hour to NZ Standard Time.

Most New Zealanders should experience a seamless transition, with modern electronic devices adjusting automatically. However, older devices may need to be adjusted manually.
Do not forget it is also a good time to check emergency plans, survival kits and smoke alarms.
