What's the Plan, Stan? – Getting Ready for an Emergency

Projects and programmes New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 22 August 2017
Notice reference #: 1H9e97

What will you do in an emergency? You probably already know to "Drop, Cover and Hold" during an earthquake. But as citizens of New Zealand, we all need to know more about the six natural hazards that cause emergencies - floods, storms, earthquakes, tsunami, volcanoes, and landslides. More importantly, we need to know about the six impacts - Stuck at home, Can't get home, Have to evacuate, No power, No water, No phone or internet.

During this virtual field trip find out about New Zealand's history of emergencies caused by natural hazards. Explore the latest and best practice recommended for you and your school during an emergency. This field trip coincides with the release of the updated "What's the Plan, Stan?"

New Zealand is on the "Pacific Ring of Fire". In our lifetime each of us is likely to experience a major emergency caused by a natural hazard. You might be at home, at school, or on holiday when an emergency strikes so everyone everywhere needs to know what to do.
