A survey which looked at Southlanders preparedness for a civil defence emergency shows while 56 per cent of people have items stored around the house, only 34 per cent have an emergency kit ready to go.
The Environment Southland 2012 Residents' Opinion Survey, carried out by Versus Research, asked 600 people throughout the region about their preparedness, and found the top three emergency supplies people have ready were: non-perishable food (69 per cent), a torch (51 per cent) and bottled water (50 per cent).
The results were discussed at this morning's Civil Defence Emergency Management Group meeting at Environment Southland. Emergency Management Southland manager Neil Cruickshank said it was good news that people had supplies of bottled water and canned foods in their household, it was disappointing only 38 per cent had an emergency plan in place.

Being prepared for an emergency is one of the key messages that civil defence tries to reinforce to the public. The California Emergency Management Agency breaks down kits into: essentials, sanitation, safety and comfort, cooking and tools and supplies. This poster shows the types of items that people should keep in a home emergency survival kit. If your home is destroyed, you are dislocated from the kind of earthquake kit what do you need material and kind of weaving.

We have designed and compiled emergency survival kits for homes, cars, offices and schools which concentrate on the essential products in order to assist you and your family to survive for 3 days in an emergency.
Your kit should be easily accessible and have enough supplies for you, your family and pets to survive for at least three days.
