Passionate about helping to spread the message
The Palmerston North City Council's Emergency Management team love spreading the ‘Be Prepared' message and are happy to talk to as many individuals and groups as possible.
Do you want to know more about how you can develop your own emergency management plan. What exactly do you need to have in your emergency kit or grab bag? What do you do with your pets if you have to evacuate your home? The team are happy to come to your place of work and talk during a lunch break, attend a club meeting, visit schools or even visit students who are flatting for the first time to advise how they can be better prepared. They are also happy to come and speak to those who don’t speak English as a first language.
Palmerston North is no different to any other city in New Zealand when it comes to natural or manmade potential hazards and it’s never too late to put together a plan to enable you and your family to survive the next major event. So if your group is looking for a speaker, or you think your workplace needs some advice on being prepared, call the team on 356 8199 and make an appointment for them to visit.
