Multilingual Earthquake and Tsunami Safety

Civil Defence resources on earthquake and tsunami safety are now available in many languages to help keep everyone safe.

The 7.8m Kaikoura earthquake, tsunami, and aftershocks in November 2016 highlighted New Zealand’s risk of natural disaster. While we can’t predict when one will happen, recognising the warning signs and knowing the correct, life-saving action to take during a disaster can keep you and your loved ones safe.

Please consult the  Civil Defence website for information about for more about emergencies.  Translated factsheets are found  here (scroll to the bottom for the translated resources).
