Exercises & Public Education
Current location in the site
Exercise Pandora is an annual regional based exercise held since 1995. The aim of Exercise Pandora is to practice and evaluate the response procedures and the effectiveness of the organisations involved.
Note that the exercises are generally desk-top based, and while some physical resources and equipment is moved around to generate realism to the exercise, the impact on the public is minor.
Public Education Programmes
Being prepared at home, at school, at work.
Earthquakes, floods, storms and volcanic eruptions all have one thing in common: the potential to ruin everything we have worked for - homes, treasured possessions and possibly the loss of a loved one. Disasters happen quickly and without compassion. We can't prevent disasters but we can all take simple steps to reduce the impact, and be better prepared to recover quickly.
