A Civil Defence emergency is a major incident that is
too big for police, fire or ambulance services to manage
alone. Disaster threats to Hawke's Bay could include
storms, floods, tidal waves (tsunamis), earthquakes,
chemical spills or a volcanic eruption.
Civil Defence organisations are based within the local
territorial councils. Civil Defence advises people to
keep their survival kit ready at all times. It may take
more than three days for help to arrive.

If you have to leave home during an emergency, make sure you can quickly assemble a getaway kit.
