Get Ready at Bunnings
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.
