Project AF8 has released four short videos (around 2 minutes each) to explain why we are taking the Alpine Fault so seriously and help people understand how they can be prepared for the disruption to normal life that a severe earthquake will cause.

There is also a longer series of videos, featuring some of the leading scientists who have been involved in Project AF8, talking about the science behind Project AF8.

See projectaf8.co.nz or our YouTube channel for more info.

A busy time for us here at Emergency Management Southland. 

We have 3 of our staff deployed to the Nelson fires.

Over the next two days LandSAR Training is delivering CIMS4 to our partners at our Emergency Coordination Centre. This is to ensure that we have the capacity and capability to response to an emergency event.

....And tonight we have our Bluff Community Response Meeting.
