Are You Prepared?
Council urges residents to make Daylight Saving their 'get prepared' day.
Are you prepared? The key message from Civil Defence is to Be Prepared to cope on your own for up to three days or more - and there is no better time than daylight savings to ensure you are.
"Know what to do before you have to do it is the key," says head of Civil Defence Ron White. "And there is no better time than daylight savings to do an annual refresh of your civil defence emergency kits and replace whatever is necessary. You should replace the water, check use by dates on tins, check batteries and replace if needed, and it's also a good idea to check on your smoke alarm and fire extinguisher serviceability if you have one."
