One of the best things you can do to get emergency-prepared is to know where you can find up-to-date information.

During an emergency, we will broadcast information, via the internet, television and radio.

To get the most up-to-date and reliable information during an emergency:

  • Visit this website or Newsline(external link), our online news channel
  • Listen to the local radio station:
    • RNZ National Radio - 101.7 FM or 675 AM
    • The Hits - 97.7 FM or 96.5 FM
    • Newstalk ZB - 100.1 FM or 1098 AM

It's handy to have this information printed out or written down somewhere, just so you've got it when you need it most.
