It's easy to help your community both prepare for a disaster and respond to an emergency. We offer a free three-week training course that will help you to help your community.

Course content

There are three classes in our training course:

In the first class, we look at how to stay safe in emergencies, and what you can expect after a big event like an earthquake

In the second class, we look at the challenges that your community will face following a large earthquake, and how your community can help each other through the Community Emergency Hub.

In the final class, we tie it all together with an exercise, as well as giving you good advice for how you and your family can prepare to get through a big emergency safely and comfortably, and be in a position to help others
