The re­cent se­ries of earth­quakes re­mind us to ask our­selves again: Am I pre­pared? Many peo­ple think that there’s a Civil De­fence Army that will come to our aid af­ter a disas­ter but this is not true. The emer­gency ser­vices will be heav­ily strained and they won’t be able to re­spond to ev­ery­one. We could be on our own for at least three days, pos­si­bly more. So the best source of aid will be our lo­cal com­mu­nity and the ac­tions we’ve taken to pre­pare be­fore an event. The It’s Easy – Get Pre­pared book­let will help you un­der­stand some of th­ese risks, and guide you through some easy steps to bet­ter pre­pare your­self for an emer­gency. Call the Coun­cil on 237 5089 and we will send you a copy, or you can down­load one from our web­site – search “It’s Easy”. Re­mem­ber, the bet­ter pre­pared you are, the safer and more com­fort­able you, your fam­ily and your friends will be af­ter a ma­jor event.
