Earthquakes, floods, storms, tsunami, non-natural hazards and volcanic eruptions can be frightening because they strike at any time and often without warning. By helping your family be more prepared at home, you can reduce the risk of danger.

Work with your family

Your family needs to have a plan for what to do if there is an emergency. Read the list of things you should talk with your family about.

Your Pets

During a major disaster such as an earthquake, storm or tsunami your pets need to be looked after too. If you have family pets you will need to include them in your emergency planning.


What's the Plan Stan is an initiative which aims to support teachers to develop their students' knowledge, skills and attitudes to respond to and prepare for an emergency.
