Disasters could happen at any time throughout New Zealand.

What disasters could we have?

We could have disasters like Storms or Volcanoes. We could also have Earthquakes or Tsunami. For some disasters you may not get any warnings. That is why it is important for you to prepare now so that you know what to do. And you will be ready wherever you are in New Zealand.

Disasters can happen at anytime, so it is important for you to watch this video and understand clearly how you can protect and keep yourself safe. If you want to find out more, you can get more detailed information on what to do from your local council or by visiting the civil defense website.


First of a series of videos from from New Zealand Civil Defence explaining what to do in the event of a natural disaster.
