Disasters happen quickly and without compassion, disrupting thousands of lives every year. During a disaster emergency services may not be able to respond to every call immediately, and this means you must be ready to provide your own shelter, food, first-aid, water and sanitation for at least three days.
Are you ready?
This is your complete guide to what to do before, during and after disaster strikes, covering all possible situations and eventualities including:
* what to do in specific emergencies such as an earthquake or tsunami, a volcanic eruption, a bushfire, an epidemic or an extreme weather event
* checking your home - gas, loose wires or power lines, water and sewage
* where and how to get information and help (radio stations, local authorities and Civil Defence)
comprehensive checklists to ensure you and your family are prepared
and much more.
This is the book every Kiwi household should have to ensure you and your family have an emergency plan and know exactly what to do when disaster strikes.
