Do the ShakeOut
New Zealand ShakeOut is happening on Thursday 17 October 2019 at 1.30pm.
ShakeOut is held across the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake — Drop, Cover and Hold — and to practise a tsunami hīkoi (evacuation) if in a coastal area.
ShakeOut is more than just a chance for us to practise the right action to take, it’s an opportunity for everyone to make sure they’re prepared for any emergency.
Individuals, households, schools and workplaces are encouraged to take part.
Sign up at https://getready.govt.nz/involved/shakeout/sign-up/ and get ready to shakeout. The site has plenty of resources and ideas of how to run your shakeout.
You can share your pictures of Shakeout with Civil Defence via their Facebook page #TaranakiCivilDefenceEmergencyManagement
