Know where to find your local Community Emergency Hub
In a disaster such as a big earthquake, there is likely to be widespread damage to power lines, water pipes, buildings, roads, and phone networks.
Emergency services will be dealing with the most urgent matters, so the people you live nearest to will be your most immediate and ongoing source of support.
If a disaster meant the phone networks were down, do you know where to go to ask for and offer help?
As we saw in the Canterbury earthquakes and other disasters around the world, communities naturally come together to help those in need.
After you have checked on your household and neighbours, you can go to your local Community Emergency Hub. It's a place where people in your neighbourhood can support each other and work out what to do next.
Your Community Emergency Hub is opened and run by people like you, using the skills and resources that you already have – together, we can get through a disaster.
