Civil Defence helps communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters. It is not an emergency service that will turn up at your door. Your survival after a major disaster could depend on the food and resources you and your neighbours have between you.

Emergency services could take several days to provide you with relief or supplies.

You are responsible for:

  • Preparing your family to survive with sufficient food and water.
  • Staying warm and dry for several days after natural disasters such as floods, fires, tsunami and earthquakes.

For more information on how to prepare and get through a civil defence emergency visit the Civil Defence website.
