Get ready and get through – that's the message for all of us here in Porirua City facing potential natural disasters like floods, earthquakes or tsunami. Make sure you're prepared, it's easy!

Preparing for rain

We can't control the weather, but we can be prepared for it. Here are some practical steps you can take at home to prepare for a heavy rain event, and information on what to do when there is a risk of flooding at or near your home.


If it's long or strong, get gone!
