WELCOME TO NEW ZEALAND PREPPERS
Is your family prepared for survival in a disaster.
Our family spent several years living in an isolated area in the South Island high country that experienced extremes of weather. In that time we went one night without power due to maintenance and were given notice to prepare. Yet in that time, and since, many cities and larger urban areas in New Zealand have been without power for extended periods of time. We have had earthquakes, heavy snow, extreme winds, and flooding. These have changed many peoples lives forever. You dont need to be an extreme prepper, but every family needs to be prepared. It could be as simple as a few extra cans of food, a few bottles of water, and a tiny cooker.

IN AN EMERGENCY- DIAL 111
During a disaster event telephone lines need to be kept clear for emergency calls to get through so please avoid making calls unless absolutely urgent. Local authorities are responsible for civil defence emergency management (CDEM) in their area. If life or property is threatened always dial 111 for Police, Fire or Ambulance.

Many of these phenomena will only affect an area a few kilometres from the volcano. However, volcanic ash fall can be deposited thousands of kilometres from its source.

WHERE IS THE SAFEST PLACE TO LIVE IN NEW ZEALAND
We're perched on the Pacific's Ring of Fire, sandwiched between two tectonic plates in the middle of the Roaring Forties.
