Selwyn schools Get Ready

Current location in the site

We have launched a new resource to help children and families prepare for emergencies.

The Council has developed an emergency preparedness booklet which teaches children about what to do in an emergency and encourages households to make their own emergency preparedness plans.

Sue with Stan and Lincoln Primary studentsCommunity Resilience Coordinator Sue Jenkins says the book has been well-received at Lincoln Primary School, where the booklets were recently presented to 160 Year 5 and 6 students.

“Students enjoyed visiting the Emergency Command Bus and meeting ‘Stan’, the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management (MCDEM) mascot,” she says.

The booklet is filled with fun, informative activities for children to complete relating to different scenarios.

Council hopes to visit more Selwyn primary schools in 2018 to discuss emergency preparedness and hand out copies of the ‘What’s the Plan Stan’ booklets.

Selwyn households can also take the opportunity to sign up to Selwyn Gets Ready, Selwyn’s own emergency alert system. Gets Ready is used to share emergency warnings and alerts via text and email. Over 7,000 Selwyn households are already signed up.
