AF8 - Alpine Fault Project
 AF8 Roadshow The Science Beneath Our Feet

 

BRINGING ALPINE FAULT SCIENCE AND HAZARD IMPACT INFORMATION TO SOUTH ISLAND COMMUNITIES, IN AREAS MOST LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED BY AN AF8 EARTHQUAKE.

 While we can’t predict when earthquakes will occur, scientific research has shown that the Alpine Fault has a history of generating regular, large earthquakes. The next event is likely to occur within the lifetime of most of us, or our children and young people, for whom this is likely to have major short and long-term impacts.

The AF8 Roadshow provides South Island communities, in areas most likely to be affected by an AF8 earthquake, with direct access to Alpine Fault science and hazard impact information relevant to them and their region.

On this inaugural tour we will be visiting 12 communities around the South Island, working with local schools and hosting a series of Public Science Talks. While we can’t visit everyone on this tour, we hope to be able to run a second tour in the future. Thanks to all our supporters: Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management, the 6 South Island CDEM Groups, Resilience to Nature’s ChallengesGNS ScienceQuakeCoRE and University of Otago – we couldn’t do this without you!

Never happens? Happens.

Disasters can strike when we least expect it. The Easter break is a good time to get your emergency preparedness kits together and discuss a plan with your family.

Hi. We have been looking at the comments relating to the downloading of the Survey. Our tests have shown that it should make no difference whether you are using an Apple or Android device. We can only assume that the issue is due to individual internet or cellular connections.

So, what I discovered was.... you click your choices (nothing shows up) then push the page up or down and the squares go blue recording your choice. Strange, but it seems that if you move the screen - it recognises where you’ve clicked. Hope that helps someone.

Hi guys I’ve just tried to do this on 2 devices and had trouble selecting answers so not very accurate reply but got there in the end

The page was not responding to the clicking of choices ... anyone else having this problem. I’m using an iphone

I was able to complete the survey on my laptop. I would like to see more community events in Invercargill for readiness planning, including some that aren't in the evenings. Thanks.

Done. Straight forward and no issues. Just this weekend refreshed and re supplied my emergency kits. Pays to do this as some items were close to expiring.

The form takes a long time to fully load and then doesn’t work properly 🥴

Is this to help folk recover from their rate bill?

Angus has worked really hard for the past 3 years leading Project AF8. Were stoked that the team received this recognition for all their hard work last night.
