Be Prepared

At Home

The Bay of Plenty will experience natural and man-made disasters such as power and water failure, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions in the future. Disasters have the potential to ruin everything you have worked for over the years - homes, treasured and precious momentos and, possibly the loss of a loved one...

At School

Experience around the world has shown that where people are aware of the risks around them and plan their response, then injuries, damage and subsequent trauma are significantly reduced. The purpose of the planning process is therefore to ensure that the safety of students and staff is maintained as far as possible in any emergency incident. To learn more, visit our At School page.

At Work

Planning for emergencies is a sensible precaution. We are faced with a variety of hazards that could cause an emergency for your business. That represents a threat to you, your employees, your customers, and your community. Businesses that are poorly prepared to deal with an emergency, or the consequences of it, may not be able to stay in business. To learn more, visit our At Work page.


If you or a member of your household or community has a disability, make arrangements now with a family member, friend or neighbour, to help in an emergency. To learn more, visit our Disabilities page.
