Emergency management

We support Lower Hutt in preparing for an emergency.

By taking some simple steps, you can make sure you, your family, and your workplace are prepared for an emergency.

All of New Zealand is at risk of earthquakes and all of our coastline is at risk of tsunami. We can’t predict when they will happen, but we can protect ourselves and our family.

Helping you get to higher ground in a tsunami.

Large earthquakes that take place in the water could create a tsunami.

In case of an emergency here's a guide for what you should do.

In an emergency the sirens will sound continuously and the siren alerts you to the potential for serious flooding or other incidents, sucha s a chemical leak, that could affect Lower Hutt. Sirens will not be used for tsunami warnings.
