Get Ready Week
Aucklanders can explore whether they would be prepared in the event of an emergency with Get Ready Week, on now until September 27. Despite the recent winter storms, many Aucklanders have not planned for how they will cope in a disaster, or taken steps to look after themselves and their families. Clive Manley, Auckland Civil Defence Controller says during a disaster, emergency services are stretched and cannot assist everybody. See aucklandcivildefence.org.nz for more information and resources for Get Ready Week 2014. If you have a smartphone, you can receive instant updates from the Auckland Civil Defence app, available in your app store.
