To cel­e­brate Get Ready Week, the Min­istry of Civil De­fence and Emer­gency Man­age­ment is team­ing up with Bun­nings to raise aware­ness of how to pre­pare for emer­gen­cies in the com­mu­nity.

Bun­nings stores across the coun­try will be pro­mot­ing emer­gency pre­pared­ness through a range of ini­tia­tives, from in­for­ma­tion ta­bles to ed­u­ca­tional Kids Work­shops with help­ful re­sources avail­able for cus­tomers to take home. Head to Bun­nings Cam­bridge or Te Awa­mutu to check out the free Kids DIY Work­shops this Satur­day and Sun­day from 12.30pm.

The work­shops will of­fer in­for­ma­tive and in­ter­ac­tive ways for chil­dren to learn im­por­tant mes­sages, whilst cre­at­ing a prac­ti­cal emer­gency con­tact board, wrist brand or book­marker with vi­tal in­for­ma­tion on what to do if dis­as­ter strikes.

Ad­di­tion­ally, selected Bun­nings stores will be tak­ing part in the New Zealand ShakeOut, the coun­try’s na­tional earth­quake drill and tsunami hikoi, at 9.30am on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 18.

Sarah Stu­art-Black, Direc­tor of the Min­istry of Civil De­fence and Emer­gency Man­age­ment says New Zealand ShakeOut is a great op­por­tu­nity to make sure your fam­ily is pre­pared in an emer­gency.
