It's important to be notified as soon as possible of any hazards that may affect you.
Emergency Mobile Alerts are messages about emergencies sent by authorised emergency agencies to capable mobile phones. The alerts are designed to keep people safe and are broadcast to all capable phones from targeted cell towers.
Download the Red Cross Hazard App to help you and your family prepare for and respond to hazards in New Zealand. The app is a vital tool to help you get through emergencies and get disaster alerts.
Social media is another great way to stay informed. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up to the minute information
Radio may be your prime source of information. Power and telecommunication outages are likely to impact your ability to get information from normal channels. If you don’t have a radio at home (most people have a radio in their car) consider a wind up or battery operated radio so you can stay informed.
