Shakeout Preparedness Tips for Business
New Zealand ShakeOut, our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi, is taking place on Thursday 18 October 2018 at 9:30 am.
ShakeOut is held across the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake, Drop, Cover and Hold - and to practise a tsunami hīkoi (evacuation) if in a coastal area.
With the ShakeOut exercise coming up, it is a good reminder for businesses to improve their preparedness.
Resilient Organisations have put together a few tips and simple actions organisations can do to significantly improve their resilience and preparedness.
