Know what to do in case of emergency

November 30th, 2016

With recent earthquakes and tsunami alerts fresh on the minds of Motueka people, a meeting has been organised to remind us of how to stay safe in a civil emergency.

The meeting, to be held at the Motueka Recreation Centre, will see our local Civil Defence people give a presentation on the facts, followed by questions and answers.

It will be held next Tuesday, December 6th, starting at 7.00pm, and will be facilitated by the Motueka Community Board and one of its board members Claire Hutt.

The presentation will focus will be on:

  • how can I be prepared?
  • how and where do I find information in an emergency?
  • when should I evacuate and to where?

The meeting is open to all residents and business owners in Motueka and surrounding areas. The purpose of this meeting is for us all to feel more prepared, should an emergency arise.

It will be held either upstairs or downstairs, depending on the number of people attending, so Claire says it would be much appreciated if those intending to be there let her know by emailing her at
