GET READY TO SHAKEOUT!

Everyone, everywhere should know the right action to take before, during and after an earthquake.

Thursday 15 October is the International ShakeOut Day of Action. New Zealand will be the first country to participate this year, at 9:15am!*

We’re aiming to get 1.5 million New Zealanders to sign up to take part – which should also make ours the biggest (per capita) ShakeOut drill in the world!

Once you’ve signed up we’ll keep you up to date with all the information you need to take part in the Drop, Cover and Hold drill.

* If you cannot do the drill at 9:15am, 15 October 2015, you can choose within two weeks (and still be counted).
