Tsunami Blue Lines
The blue lines show the safe places to evacuate to if there is a long or strong earthquake. That is an earthquake that lasts longer than a minute or one that is too strong to easily stand up in.
Social media is a huge part of everyday life for many people, so it would be silly if we weren’t part of that. We want to make being prepared for an emergency something that is normal and everyday, and easy.
Community Emergency Hubs
Community Emergency Hubs are about the community coming together to do what it can to help each other - people helping people with what they have available. WREMO works with our communities to empower and promote a community-led response to the challenges communities will face during a disaster.
Community Response Plans
Community response planning helps communities understand how they can assist each other after a disaster. The output from the workshops are recorded in the Community Emergency Hub Guides for that community.
Emergency Compost Toilet Trials
In a disaster you may not be able to use your normal toilet if sewerage lines are broken or damaged. It’s easy to make and use an emergency toilet.
