Meet the Manawatu whānau who will take us through planning and preparing for different kinds of emergencies. The campaign is developed by Ngāi Tahu for Ngāi Tahu whānau.
Emergencies happen and they can happen anytime. Being prepared gives us the best chance to ensure we have considered the needs of everyone in our whare, from our pēpi to our tāua and pōua, and even our pets.
Join us in our campaign to raise awareness around the importance of being prepared for natural disasters as a whānau, hapū and iwi. Please share the video when you see them on our social media channels.
We also encourage you to make use of the resources on this page. Start the kōrero with your whānau around your emergency plan. You can use the Whānau Emergency Plan template provided below.
