Pas­sion­ate about help­ing to spread the mes­sage

The Tribune (NZ) - - Square Circular -

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.
