Surviving the BIG SHAKE

Fantastic news! Based on the latest Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management survey results it’s obvious that Wellingtonians are well prepared for a major disaster. But what about Wellington City and its infrastructure, the water reservoirs, the thousands of water pipes, wastewater and drainage? How well would Wellington’s infrastructure services manage during and after an earthquake and how long would it take before the water is back on? Is the Council prepared for this?

You can have all your questions answered during the free lunchtime seminars on Earthquakes held at the Wellington Central Library during August. Here is your chance to listen to the experts and be informed about what’s likely to happen to water services in Wellington if there is a BIG SHAKE.

Come to the Ground floor of the Wellington Central Library, on Thursday, 18 August, at 12 noon to find out what the Council is doing to prepare and what you should do.

And should you wish to find out more about emergency management check out some of the library’s latest books on survival and disaster preparedness! Here’s a good book to start off any reading list:
